Dear mr,
We are uncertain what species of Orbweaver you have sent our way.  We couldn’t even say for sure if this is an Araneus.  Perhaps one of our readers can tell.  Your photos are amazing.  It isn’t unusual for female spiders to eat their mates.

    We are looking at almost the exact same spider who has made a web on the outside of our kitchen window and has been comfortable there for a couple days now. In the light, it looks like a halloween spider, and kinda like a mild version of the tarnatuals that have orange striped legs. But when my daughter and I looked at the markings right now, we noticed they are almost identical to this one. We’re in North East Tennessee Tri-Cities area. Love to know Thanks!
