Argiope Spider

My neighbor has this monster spider in her back yard. I got pictures, and went right away to look it up. It's not poisonous, but MANNN, is it HUGE. It looks tropical, LOL. The body is as big as a dime, I would say.

We have these all over the place down here. As a matter of fact, I was looking for one last night that made it's nest in a corner of our roof last year. I figure it's probably dead, but their egg sacs are so interesting. We call them writing spiders down here.
