I spotted this one while taking a walk around the office complex. She sets up camp in this same spot every day.

This is an Argiope aurantia or Black & Yellow Garden Spider.

They are pretty fascinating. I recommend clicking through and reading about them. The craziest part..."After mating, the male dies, and is sometimes then eaten by the female." Ouch.

The President was in Raleigh, NC today to talk about his new jobs bill. My office is right near RDU Airport so I had a great view of Air Force One as it took off to head back to DC.
