[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a shot of a female Blank and yellow garden spider form Avery Island, Louisiana. I believe it has a bee in it's grasp, and the bee isn't fairing to well. The body can be up to an inch long. Webs are over 12" wide with a zig-zag pattern in the middle. I couldn't get all of the legs quite into focus.

Good macro! I would have cropped the photo in landscape format, but this works just as well.
Well done!
