A yellow garden spider (AKA Argiope aurantia), poised in the middle of her immaculately-maintained web, patiently awaits her next meal. Sporting a classic @WuTangClan colour scheme, this spider, like the members of the Wu, has many aliases: gilded silver-face, McKinley spider, zigzag spider, black and yellow spider, corn spider, writing spider and golden garden spider. This species is mostly seen in gardens - hence the name - and has been observed throughout North America, Central America, Mexico and Hawaii. Their venom, which is harmless to humans, features a range of polyamine toxins (e.g. argiotoxin ArgTX-636) that apparently have medicinal potential. As such, if any arachnophobes in the audience happen to come across one, please refrain from killing it and appreciate its beauty instead.
