Orbweaver Spider

CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Orbweaver Spider

This guy (or gal) was weaving it’s web in the lemon tree as the sun was setting. My best guess is possibly Eriophora ravilla, but there are many that look similar.

Spiders are very beneficial in the garden, eating pest species.
