I posted a photo yesterday and asked who could properly identify what it was. Thank you for those who participated.
In case you missed my post, you can find it here: Can You Identify This Photo And now for the answer.
Snapped the photo on my fence and was amazed at the size of it. It was actually a yellow garden spider sac. So I left it alone to hatch.
These are good and harmless spiders for the garden. The spider species Argiope aurantia is commonly known as the yellow garden spider. The yellow garden spider does not live in very dense location clusters like other orb spiders such as the golden orb web spider.
The yellow garden spider keeps a clean orderly web in comparison to the cluttered series of webs built and abandoned by groups of golden orb spiders.
