I'm hoping someone might be able to identify a spider we found back by the compost pile. It was in a web and it was big, nealy 2 inches in length with the body being over an inch long. The most distinguishing feature was its bright yellow body with a black marking that looked a lot like a face. I've never seen anything like it before. We're in Maryland, if that helps.

Have not been able to identify it on the internet yet.


Thanks for the help.

A beautiful and BENEFICIAL spider - try not to disturb her...she's keeping your garden free of the pests that would otherwise be mean and nasty to your plants! :haha: I love seeing them - big and imposing, but beatiful and a blessing to have. Found one in the corner of my garden gate the other day - first one I've seen all year and I was beginning to worry!

we have one living on the back side of our mobile home.. she is HUGE.. including her legs, she is the size of my hand...

she is having to work hard right now too.. the love bugs are out in force and really tearing up her web... but then again she is eating good too...
