Spinning a Web.

These spiders are very common but I never noticed one until yesterday. It took a 9 year old great-grandson to point it out so that I'd see it. I wonder why we don't like spiders. This one is really pretty. 



                          It is a black and yellow garden spider. duh!!!
                  Or if you want to get more technical... Argiope

and just look at that strange zig-zag thread woven through it's web. It's called a stablementum. Just fascinating. 

               I really didn't know all that stuff... I looked it up!

  1. They are facinating and I have gotten over my horror of them. Have you seen the face of the jumping spider? Kind of like a cranky old man--rather cute.

  2. I dont know why we dont like spiders unless we fear they will bite/sting us. This one is pretty for sure. Thanks for info.
