Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider

A new neighbor moved into our flower box last week.

We've decided that she's a girl - she was pretty big as far as spiders go. We were fascinated watching her make her home. It was incredible watching how she used her back legs to put the silk where she needed it as she threaded her way around and around the web. Once it was done, she planted herself right in the middle, waiting for her prey.

She was there several days, but it rained one night and she moved out. It was fun having her while it lasted.
