This is what I found on my garage door yesterday … Ick!
However, as much as I HATE HATE HATE spiders, I’m oddly fascinated by them. I spent about an hour last night looking up what kind of spider this would be and it seems that it is likely to be just a plain old “orb weaving” garden spider. Hmm. Unfortunately, she was just too creepy and hairy and spiny looking … and she moved too quickly when we touched her web … so he had to be umm…….destroyed. I’m sure she enjoyed her last meal, though … you will see she’s sucking the life out of the little tiny beetle in her clutches. Click on the pictures for a better view!
