Orchard spider?
My two boys and I enjoy an occasional trip to a local Louisiana swamp, while most of the spider we encounter are the large “Bananna Spiders”, there are these ocassional very colorful jewels. Based on another posting on your website it looks like an Orchard Spider. Can you comment? Thanks
Chris

Hi Chris,
You are exactly correct. This is an Orchard Spider in the genus Leucauge.
