The orchard orbweaver Leucauge venusta* is a small but elaborately colored spider that specializes in hunting in small trees, shrubs and understory plants. They don't seem too bothered by human activity, at least judging by the frequency I encounter them. They probably benefit from the many small flies that accompany so many human endeavors. The orchard orbweaver hangs upside-down in her angled orb, in forests, orchards and suburbs from Ontario to Brazil.

* White, beautiful.
