[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a species of spider in the family Anareidae, found from southern U.S. to Chile and Argentina. It is a member of the genus Argiope and is commonly known as the silver argiope.
This spider often spin stabilimenta into their webs. These often take the form of zigzag lines and frequently there are four of them forming a centerless "X" shape near the center of the web. The spider then rests in the very middle, with four pairs of legs each drawn together and splayed out in a "X" shape more or less aligned with the stabilimentum "X".
