Just wanted to share a picture of the two Orb weavers we shared our patio with this summer. We live in Charleston, SC. We named them Lilith and Frasier. Unfortunately, Lilith disappeared about a week after this photo was taken.

Hi Amy,
What an amazing photo of a pair of Golden Silk Spiders, Nephila clavipes.  We are not sure who was named Lilith, but the larger of the pair is the female.  We would think that it would have been the smaller male that vanished.
