    I found this sort of strolling across our driveway. I have lived in the general area all my life (Northern Dutchess Co., NY) and this is the first time I have seen this. Does anyone knows what it is? Thanks

    Never seen anything like it.

    I'm certain there will be an arachnoid lover on here who will know what it is.

    It looks like a Marbled Orb Weaver.

    It kinda looks like the ones we have here that the locals call "fall spiders". All of a sudden they were everywhere. I can't tell you how many webs I've been tangled up in in the morning. Eeeeew!
    I don't mind spiders- when they are OUTSIDE. But I sure don't like getting one of those buggers in my hair. Gives me the shivers!
