Portland.  I'd hate to kill it cause it just sits in

Well Rob, it looks large, black and yellow.  A white twisty stabilimentum?
Common this time of year.  Big and gorgeous.  Female ready for mating, look
for the tiny male.  Neither poisonous nor dangerous, entertaining and
beautiful, one of my favorites, enjoy it.   Black and yellow argiope.
