Yellow Garden Spider (Argiope aurantia)
It's not very often that you might see such a creature so close to your master bedroom...this lady decided to make her web just outside one of my master windows. It's given us a perfect opportunity to observe her closely without fear of being bitten. My kids have loved looking at her. Isn't she gorgeous? Thought I'd share since so many times we, as artists (as humans really!!) can be inspired by nature. Look at her incredible coloring!! Maybe I'll paint something thinking of her....hope she can inspire you, too!!
