Horned spider

One of the most commonly seen spiders at Bosque Santa Lucia is the horned-spider. Maybe it's seen more because it loves to spread its web across the open trails of the Bosque. I confronted this one this morning as I walked around the woods near the reception center. It's not often that I see a web of this design, so I found it very attractive. After some hit and miss shots with the sun rays coming in through the trees, I finally managed an image that captures both spider and its web.
