A milkweed seed caught in the web of a Banded Garden Spider (Argiope trifasciata):
On a walk in a field, I saw a group of common milkweed plants with open pods, spreading seeds. Some of the seeds were floating in the grasses, suspended. A web? I found the web and a number of caught seeds first, and then the spider. I had to wait between gusts to take this image, with the benefit of a passing cloud to soften the light. Not what the spider hoped to capture, but an unusual combination of two fall favorites.
