Garden spider



An enormous garden spider at my in-laws' a couple of weeks ago.
Huge.
About two inches at least.

Bud and I chanced upon one a couple of weeks ago and at first it startled me out of my wits. Then the beauty of it all sank in and I had to photograph it and share it on my blog too.

I've seen these before just never around our place. Nice shot!

Amy, I remember one of these spiders living on our front porch when I was a child. We named him Humphrey!

We have one of these hanging on one of our windows right now! When that first rick-rack string first appeared I thought it was quite odd. And yes, he is just huge! I've not been able to get a nice clear photo of him. I wish he weren't on the window because I get a reflection. I've left him hanging there. Sometimes if you get too close he will run up the web as far away from you as he can get. Sometimes he wraps lots and lots of webbing around his catch, I suppose to preserve it for another day!

S/he is enormous! And I have not seen a single of these this year. Had not even thought about it till now.

A Golden Orb! They are the best spider to have in the garden. This is a great capture!

Super shot of the spider and it's web. I find them fascinating to watch just as long as they don't get to close.
