Re: Almost ran into this guy in my yard

I nearly did the same thing in my yard this weekend!

Pete--they're Spiny Orb Weavers, and although they aren't terribly large (about the size of a nickel, max?), they appear in droves during the fall and build their webs in the most annoying places

Don't know where the OP is located, but I'm in Chas, SC, so maybe they're only found in the southern US? I don't recall seeing these when I was growing up in St. Louis.

edit--took too much time to post, as usual!
