Pumpkin Spider...

I came across this unusual-looking spider, resembling a small pumpkin with legs, towards the end of October. But this is not a Halloween costume. This is actually a female marbled orb-weaver and it was the first time that I'd seen one of these spiders in the United States. It certainly is rather striking!

 The spider's abdomen is massive.
Crawling over our driveway's gravel.
