SPIDER

We found a spider on the outside of the window. 
It's a Black and Yellow Argiope, a COMMON ORB WEB SPIDER.

Look closely and you will see TWO webs. The female makes the big circular web and the male makes the zig zag web.

We have also found these spiders among our grasses this summer. I love their coloring.
What kinds of spiders have you seen in your area?

happy day!

I hope all has been well at your neck of the woods. How is the little one? That is quite a spider!

I love Argiopes, and we have seen none this year... maybe our summer was too brutal for them. I miss their lovely webs!
