Upside down. Boy you turn me, inside out and round and round.

The spider species, Argiope aurantia, is commonly known as the Black and Yellow Garden Spider, Writing Spider, Banana Spider, or Corn Spider. They have distinctive yellow and black markings on their abdomens and a mostly white cephalothorax. Males range from 5 to 9 mm; females from 19 to 28 mm. Like other members of Argiope they are considered harmless to humans. They are of the Family: Araneidae (Orb Weavers)

 

This one lives on the railing of the boardwalk in Lake Martin.
