Greetings. On 10/14/15, I found and photographed a spider. I got an ID from BugGuide.net, an Orb Weaver (Eustala cepina), but I have been unable to find any further information about it. Just wondering if you could help with information about its life history. I have attached one of the photos I took of it.

The life histories of many spider species have not been documented, especially in formats useful to non-specialists. Although you may not find information specific to the species you photographed, investigating the habits of orb weavers in general might be productive depending upon the purpose of your study.
