Large Orchard Orb Weaver Spider with a choice web over a small stream with a nice sound. This is prime real estate and this big Orb weaver is not sharing its space with others. It is fairly common for small Orchard Orb Weavers to share a tangle of webs until they get larger. As is typical this big spider has multiple layers of webs making an effective 3D construction.

Another video of a smaller version of this spider is below here.

This video from the USA says about itself:

Orchard Orb Weaver Spider catching and eating a Carpenter Ant. This Orb Weaver spider is relatively common in Florida and looks like it has red lights glowing on it for defensive purposes, Despite the appearance of two bright red triangles on its abdomen that look like at first glance like an hourglass it is not poisonous like the Black Widow – its “teeth” would have trouble penetrating human skin in any case, but it is very beneficial feasting mostly on mosquitoes and small flies.

These colorful, delicate spiders make circular webs that are usually positioned horizontally or at an angle to the ground, and they typically hang in the middle of their webs. The carapace appears yellow-green, darker on the sides. The abdomen is somewhat elongated and can be variably colored with silver, greens, yellows, reds and some blues. The legs are slender and long.
