Spider suspense

This is I believe a Orchard Spider (Leucage venusta), hanging from the bottom of its web and waiting for a meal.  From the woods near Madisonville, across the lake from New Orleans.

Very colorful, for sure. I believe we have spiders similar to this in Florida.

I don't think I've ever seen such a colorful spider, but maybe I just haven't looked closely enough.
