Striped Orb Weaver
Larinia famulatoria or borealis

Larinia orb weaver
This Larinia had a black spot near the end of its abdomen so I don't know if that was part of its pattern
or it had some kind of mishap.  I was very excited to find her but I had a heck of a time photographing

her because of
the wind. This was taken with a telephoto lens. © Carol Davis 5-4-2016 on Antelope Island

Larinia famulatoria or borealis
This is a shot of the abdomen that I took up close with my little camera.  These spiders are few and
far between and that's why I get so excited when I find one. This species and the Metepeira species
were the main spiders I saw this early day in May.  © Carol Davis 5-4-2016
