Halloween is around the corner so I thought I'd share our resident spiders found outside the house and I hate to disturb nature, but thought someone might be able to ID them
Found on the front porch with prey spun up:

Found hanging out at the boys window (It looks like an orb weaver, but doesn't eat its web):

with flash for details:

I'm thinking that this is an Araneus diadematus more commonly known as one of the orb weaver spiders or European Garden spider (even though we're not in Europe)

that thing is huge! I think there's one in the tree in our backyard and possibly one in the tree in the Kindergarten playground!
