Found this spider October 20, 2012. It was 50 degrees outside. It’s clearly bigger than a quarter. When fully expanded I’d say its about the size of a half dollar. Reddish orange abdomen.

Hi Dmitry,
This is an Orbweaver in the family Araneidae, but we have not had any luck searching BugGuide for a species identification.
