Furrow SpiderThat is an orb weaver spider called a Furrow Spider,  Larinioides cornutus. An orb web is just a flat (normal) one spun between vegetation. The pile of garbage that she is being so possessive about is actually a shelter made of vegetable and animal matter that she has constructed to hide beneath when she feels threatened.

She didn’t feel threatened by me, nothing ever does.
