Elizabeth and I went to the "Geese by Golly" festival at Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge had flooded quite a bit lately, and the weather outside today was overcast and drizzly... Nonetheless, we still spotted some really neat things. :)

Description from Wikipedia

Neoscona crucifera is an orb-weaver spider in the family Araneidae. It is found in the United States from Maine to Florida in the east, to Minnesota in the Midwest, to Arizona in the southwest, and in Mexico. Its common names include Hentz’s orbweaver, and barn spider, though the latter nickname suggests the confusion that can result from using common names for spiders, as the name "barn spider" is also commonly used for the species Araneus cavaticus.
