Golden orb web spider

Spider1

Here are a couple of shots of the golden orb web spider that has been using the clothes drier as part of the framework for her web. I didn’t get a picture that included the much smaller male. These spiders are a common sight, especially at this time of the year.

According to my investigations on the internet, there are lots of different kinds of orb web (or orb weaver) spiders but this is Nephila clavata, found throughout Korea, Japan, China and Taiwan.
