I found this beauty while visiting my grandma in Rockledge, FL. I saw 2 in her yard.
Found a couple of these fellas in the villa we stayed at in Orlando. We loved 'em!
Between azaleas on either side of a path through our "woodland" garden. They are said to put the little tufts of silk in their webs to warn off birds.
