Golden Silk Orb Weaver
These huge spiders, Golden Silk Orb Weaver, seem to be taking over the neighborhood. We have found them weaving their golden webs between the trees in several of our neighbors trees. I find them interesting and pretty. The females can be up to 2 inches not including the leg span. Apparently, the males are much smaller. I wouldn't know, I haven't seen one. The web itself is like a condo for arachnids. Anyway, happy Friday everybody.
