This is my front yard at night (duh) and something's out there. I know the title of this post gives it away but I also know that several of my family and friends abhor spiders and needed to be warned. I'm not a huge fan either but when a harmless, beneficial comes along I just can't help but be interested. If you've been to FL you know bugs here are big. This spider eats some of those bugs.
Gotta love her.
I just wouldn't want to mistakenly walk into her web because even though I know she won't bite,
I. Would. Be. So. Freaked. Out.
Can you see her now?
She is covered with very reflective hair!
This spider builds her web just at sunset and then removes it before dawn.
It wasn't easy for me to get pictures. It was a bit windy and, well, dark. So, I'm sorry to have not done it justice.
The webs are close to three feet across.
Is it only me or does any one else find this amazing??
I'm sharing this at Sidewalk Shoes Garden Tuesday.
