Spinybacked orbweaver spider

Thanks to Dad and Robin (and Lu)
for researching the spider in my front yard.

You can find out more about it here: http://www.floridanature.org/species.asp?species=Gasteracantha_cancriformis

This little spider is tenacious! We've had rain almost everyday
since last week and each time it rains the web gets knocked down.
Well, this little guy(or gal, I don't know) is not going to give up this spot. He can create
this web in less than an hour... I'm serious! I've been keeping my eye on him!

Here are some photos taken today
on my lunch break.

It was getting a little pissed that I was
getting so close.
