Orb Weaver
probably Neoscona crucifera

This spider in the marshy area of the Jordanelle Dam wetlands took me by surprise because I had never seen
the Neoscona species there before.  It was aglow in the early morning sunlight.

I was unable to get a shot of the underside but I think it is the Neoscona crucifera.  It's nice to know this
neat species is protecting the higher valley wetlands.
