I believe those are Banana Spiders aka orb spiders Clover. I get them in our chicken coop, always fun to walk into. I live in Black Widow and Brown Recluse country, so shaking shoes and clothing out in the garage is a necessary function. For whatever reason the spiders this year have taken over in the garage. Volaju might find a new species in there if he looked around.

Oh boy, yeah they can make their webs deceptively fast. Some of them go off to hunt as well.

I wish i could discover a new species of spider, I'd name it after myself of course. *triumphant pose*

Clover, do you have any other pictures of them? Any other angles, I like to get a full 3D view size comparison before I am any guesses.
