Spotted in Prairie Village: A very detailed spider

We posted a shot of a hefty spider and his or her web taken outside Shawnee Mission Post headquarters, and that prompted the following submission from reader Danny Novo last week:


“We have an enormous spider who has set up a web anchored to a tree, our raised deck trellis, and our grill below,” Novo wrote us. “The main section of the web is at least two feet across. This morning it is a little tattered, but she’s hanging on. Here it is in full glory last night. Spider is about and inch and a half across, legs included.
