A large tan orb weaver spider (genus _Araneus_) hangs down from her web in this side-view (profile) of her. She's hanging from intact strands of her web, but the strands above those (that are all coiled up) are from a portion of the web that was damaged. I like how you can see a single strand of spider silk running from her spinneretes to the web, acting as a safety strap.
