Orb Weaver

Sunday April 14, 2013

Ventress, LA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: According to Bugguide.net, *these spiders (Eriophora ravilla)spin their webs, which can be many feet wide, in the evening. At night they sit in the web. By day, they will usually hide in a rolled-up leaf somewhere near the edge of the web.* I captured this photo at night when I went outside to move my petunias out of the coming rain and noticed him in the light!

Nice picture, but so many times I think how glad I am that spiders are small. If they were as big as .. say a cat.. that would be dreadful.... (shudder)!
