Araneus Marmoreus

We were shocked to find this common orb weaving spider outside of Finn's bedroom window this afternoon. It is quite enormous and we certainly didn't think there was anything common about it at all, but thankfully this spider species is not known to bite humans.
I just love that she showed up in time for Halloween !
