Orb Weaver Spider

The orb web is the pretty creation that most people think of when asked to describe a spider web.  The shape is like the wheel on a bicycle with all the spokes connected.

The Orb-weaver spiders, such as the common Garden Spider, will usually spin their webs early in the morning so as to catch insects as they start their day.  Their webs are found on plants, grass and on houses and windows.
