black and orange in Virginia
I found this crawling across the blacktop at my house. I’ve been led to believe bright colors indicate poison, but, after reading your website, I have found that isn’t necessarily true. I saw some awful scary looking harmless spiders. Do you know what this is?

Hi Sue,
Sorry I can’t give you an exact species, but your orb weaver is harmless. We hope it is still alive.
