Garden Spider

This Garden Spider made it’s web just outside the window of my  screen room.

I don’t like spiders…..but they fascinate me.  If they stay outside they are welcome…but they don’t survive long if they venture inside.


Her web has been partially destroyed by the heavy rain we had……she is checking it over before rebuilding.


Here is the rebuild. I found it fascinating that she uses her hind leg to stretch out the web and tack it in place.

I did this post last year and forgot to put it on the blog. Very few Garden Spiders this year. Now we seem to have a large number of big jumping spiders.


  1. Fabulous photos! I don't care much for spiders either but we have nothing as colorful as that here, and no poisonous ones so I'm grateful for that.

  2. These are awesome images.. Loved the video too... :)


Thanks so much for stopping by. I appreciate the time you take to make a comment......If you ask a question, I will try to answer it here.
