Wild Wednesday, Furrow Orb Weaver Spider

This is a Furrow Spider which is part of the Orb Weaver family of spiders so named because they're webs are flat and "orb" shaped as opposed to a funnel shaped web.
We have always had Furrow spiders in large quantities around our home. We've always just let them be because they are such an interesting spider. They make beautiful large webs that are quite strong, some have made a web in a single night that fills a whole window.
