Black & Yellow Argiope

Here is a Black & Yellow Argiope Orb Weaving Spider I found by the side of my house. These spiders are often called "banana" or "garden" spiders. It was very difficult to achieve focus in "automatic" mode because the camera was using the bricks, not the spider. Need to learn manual focus mode to zoom in closer and get a sharper image. Camera was a Canon Powershot G2.

Very nice shot David! How big is this beautiful spider?
