You can identify spiders by their eight legs, the color of their abdomen and cephalothorax (head), six or eight eyes, and mouthparts (chelicerae). In addition, some spiders have identifiable markings such as spots, dots, or spiny bodies and legs. The yellow garden spider can oscillate her web vigorously while she remains firmly attached in the center.  This action might prevent predators like wasps and birds from drawing a good bead, and also to fully entangle an insect before it cuts itself loose.

However, in a case observed in Georgia, Davis witnessed a Vespa crabro fly into the spider's web and get tangled up. Upon looking closer it was found that V.crabro was actually cutting free prey that had been caught in the A.aurantia web. In this case, A.aurantia did not interfere or fight with the European hornet, probably because it dropped from the web and hid nearby.  Diaz, James H. (2004).
