I was checking my Senna ligustrina for butterfly caterpillars when I saw this spider. I get a lot of spiders on this plant which is a little problematic being that I'm trying to raise butterflies here. But I'd never seen one quite like this and I thought the coloring was really neat. Just wondered what kind it is.

That was super specific! Love UF for all those great info pages. Would not have guessed Orb Weaver. I learned something new!
