Prime Orb Spider Habitat, Pt 3

In Part 3 of the Orb Spider posts, I’m sharing some images of another orb spider I found in my wildflower garden. So far, I’ve not identified the species, but as with most orb spiders, it has a rather ornate pattern on his back (which should aid in identifying it, once I get some time). Late summer and early fall are favorite times to find the beautiful orb spiders and their elaborate webs. Here are a couple of images of my find:

As the temperatures continue to cool and the early mornings become “chilly”, I am planning on returning to the nearby natural prairie and see what orbs are busy there.

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 5D Mark 3 body
  • Canon EF 180 macro lens + Canon 1.4x TC
  • Vanguard Alta Pro 283CT carbon fiber tripod, with 3 Pod H-3 ballhead
  • ISO 800
  • Aperture f/8
  • Shutter 1/100 sec. and 1/125 sec.
