Thank you for sending in your wonderful photo of the belly of an Orchard Spider, Leucauge venusta. The last photo we posted did not show the distinctive belly pattern of some individuals. The BugGuide page on the Orchard Spider has interesting information. We will be post dating your letter so that it can be viewed live on the last day of our trip to Ohio, June 22.
