Orb weaver spider

Add to Lightbox
This orb weaving spider is standing so that it appears to have only four legs.  Its cephalothorax is also covered in fine white hairs.  Seen on a beautifully foggy morning in Crystal Cove State Park, there are a few drops of dew on the spider itself and its web is covered in drops.   My best guess is that this is in genus _Argiope_.  I have a shot of this with narrower depth of field, which knocks the background out of focus.
