This is the second Marbled Orb Weaver Spider I have encountered in two weeks. This one has very unusual marbling that looks like a work of art on its back. In fact the "painting" looks a bit like Beelzebub befitting it's nickname as the Pumpkin Spider, perfect for Halloween. Its "head" is not as orange as the other Marble Orb Weaver seen two weeks ago in this video:
These spiders appeared to be in the process of dying as near freezing weather settled in. They have lain their eggs which will hatch next spring. I can hardly wait!
