AHHHHHH! I was expecting a bird! *SHUDDER* !
Aren’t they amazing? We once spent nearly an hour watching an orb weaver spins its web outside our house in Santa Barbara. Great photo!
We have a slightly different orb weaver. I think. A longer shape on them. Sometimes they are called banana spiders, in fact. And they are everywhere right now! Beautiful shot.
Love those orbs!
I am soooooo scared
Don't like spiders, grew up with too many poisonous ones. Amazing webI answered your question on my Friday post.cheers, parsnip and badger
That is one gorgeous spider. Please tell her so. And that that is the nicest web I have ever seen.
We have those here in Europe where they are simply known as 'Garden Spiders'. I've always been fascinated by the zig-zag part of their webs.
That is so beautiful.
For years, I've had a spider living outside my bathroom window. No matter how many times wind (and maybe other animals?) destroyed her web, she would patiently weave it again, a perfect work of clear straight lines. We were on first-name terms, and often on week nights, she would be the last living being I'd see before going to bed.Some months ago, the web was destroyed once more, but never remade, and I have not seen "my" spider since. I suppose their live expectancy is not limitless, so maybe she simply died of old age, but I still look for her and her web every time I open the bathroom window.
Spiders are artists, their webs are natural wonders. The pic is beautiful against the blue sky.
Unlike many others, I am a fan of spiders. They eat the other pesky bugs. That is a great picture, Jennifer.
I love these garden spiders (Argiope aurantia) or Writing Spiders, which I prefer. I just hate that they eat my dragonflies...the circle of life... xo
I love how they do that! nature is amazing!
If my thirty year old daughter saw that picture she'd be screaming!
Your spider is quite an artist.
