Late last night while catching Widows at the Cove' ( another thread to come ) ... low and behold almost walked into one of the anchors. I looked up and about 8 feet off the ground , a huge spider finishing up his web , which was at least 2 foot in diameter. I ran in the house to grab the camera ....
I believe it's some sort of Orb Spider.









NEAT-O HUH ?

I just love those guys. They are here occasionally, then absent for years, then here again for one season. I had one once that had built a web over the whole pond...about 16 or 20' across. I've always wondered how the spider made it across the pond to set the anchors.

They sail across on a line of spider silk.

Awesome. Looks like a crab. We get those here too. Only see them come fall time though. Short season here for them I guess.
