CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Long-jawed Orb Weaver Spider (Leucauge argyra)
This smart Female had a beautiful web set up above goldenrod which was abuzz with various tidbits to eat including flies and beetles. Quite shiny! from certain angles this spider appeared silver and doesn’t seem to have a common name. It is often mistaken for an Orchard Spider (L. venusta).
