spiny orb-weaver (Gasteracantha cancriformis)

I have seen very few spiders this summer.  I saw an orchard spider (Leucauge venusta) this morning while I was working in my garden, but didn't have my camera.  I was delighted to see this spiny orb weaver this afternoon.  She is in a defensive position with her legs pulled in because I had just unintentionally disturbed her nest.

the n spider is the result of poor proofreading, although with as many spider species as there are, one could probably find the n spider.
