This beneficial spider is also known as a yellow garden spider or an orb weaver. Its webs are very intricate and can be over two feet wide. This spider, while it looks large and frightening, is a friend to the garden. Its prey includes mosquitoes, flies, moths, and some wasps. This one was spotted in the herb spiral, so if you are visiting the garden, enjoy checking her out, but please don’t kill her.
