Cat-faced Spider  (five photos)
Araneus gemmoides
3/4 inch

Araneus gemmoides
One of two Cat-faced Spiders hanging around my trumpet
vine in Taylorsville, Utah.  The lighting conditions weren't
the best. Since she was in the shade, I used the flash
on my camera.  Carol Davis 9-26-2019

night shot of Araneas
I used a flashlight and a point-and-shoot camera to
 take this shot at night. The colors are completely
different. Carol Davis 9-26-2019

Large Cat-faced or Cat Spider in Taylorsville, Utah.  I found
the web remnants in the day and came out at night to find
this beauty making her web.  Carol Davis, 9-13-09
