Araneus saevus: Bennington

Bennington1Bennington is a tiny, eight-legged engineer who builds spiral, wheel-shaped webs often found in gardens, fields and forests. They are social, largely non-aggressive, and seldom bite. In 2009, over 107 million orb weaver spiders were found living in a phenomenally huge web that covered four acres of a Baltimore wastewater plant.
