Banana Spider Fly Pattern

I would think that any spider pattern would work, redbreasts don't seem to be all that picky.
In North America, the Banana Spider is one of the many Orb-weaver spiders. These usually have a narrower body, with long slender legs. They are often some shade of yellow on top and the undersides have darker markings. Some are striped both on top and below.
Here are a couple: nothing fancy, a yellow foam strip for the body and yellow rubber or silicon legs. Markers provide the coloring. I am sure any similar color scheme would work as well.
