I cant figure out what it is but theres been 1 for every single year.
Its body is bright red but its back is this strange yellow with stripes. Its no bigger than my pointer finger tip.

Hi
By your description, I feel like it may be some kind of orb weaver but this is a random guess. The field museum in Chicago has an excellent handout that I use all the time. Kelly
