This is an amazing specimen of the "black and yellow garden spider". She was HUGE. I am not sure if the scale is clear, but that is a katydid and grasshopper in her pantry. An orb-weaver, I have heard these spiders will take frogs, cicadas, and even hummingbirds!
Despite my very old Nikon 990 acting up bigtime, I was able to snap this awesome shot in our meadow.
