Orb Weaver in Orange and Black

Pin It


I was going to save this photo for Halloween but couldn't wait.  Just look at the markings on this orb weaver!  Look carefully and you will see her web too.  So far, I have counted 8 orb weavers in my gardens. That's 4 times more than last year. Yay!

October, Hallowe'en, and Spiders, Oh My!

Pin It

The Hallowe'en month of October seems to be my month for discovering spiders.  And I've got a few photos coming that I took before the rains came down and washed the spiders out, along with their glorious webs.  Stay tuned.

Orb Weavers Return

Pin It


Hooray!  In keeping with the season:  The orb weavers seem to be returning in greater numbers than I've seen in the last few years.  I equate their presence with a more "normal" autumn leading to rain showers by October.  This weather pattern has been woefully lacking for several years, along with fewer and fewer orb weavers.  Now they are back and so is the rain: An inch or more in the last few days, setting us up for a cooler, wetter fall.  One can hope.
