Orbweaver

Dear LeeAnn,
Boris is an Orbweaver in the family Araneidae, but we are not certain of the species.  You may want to consider giving Boris a more femine name as Boris is a female Orbweaver.  Orbweavers mature in the fall and the adults with their large webs are quite visible at that time.

Location: Austin, Texas
