Looks like a common Brown Barn Spider that start showing up in this area this time of year...but with legs on steroids.

I was visiting my dad the other day, and after a couple hours walked back out the front door I had originally walked through when I came over. One the size of a quarter had built a web between the main and storm door. I came within inches of walking right into the damn thing.

It is about an inch and a quarter to half across. Very impressive looking.

The web appears to have a minimalist structure.

I'm going with it being an LSD spider.

Neoscona crucifera?

eta: oops. Barn spiders are N. hentzi, not crucifera.

eta2: It looks like there isn't much distinction between hentzi and crucifera, I guess both could be right for a barn spider.

I think it's a Neoscona crucifera, aka Spotted Orbweaver.

plain ol' Barn Spider.

Everywhere around here.
The best is when you walk into a web face first and feel that fat little bugger hit you in the forehead.
They won't hurt you but they can sure make you hurt yourself.

Had a argiope aurantia crawl up my leg yesterday while fishing. Had a few minutes of NOPE going on before I figured what the 2" long spider crawling up my leg was and put it somewhere else.
