A mother would love

Hi everyone,

Okay, I know what I said about no more spider stories for a while. But this one is just too pretty to ignore. Look at that face. Those eyes. Awwww.

    • Thank you, Su. This is a specie of longjaw orb spider, sometimes called a stretch spider. There are many varieties around the world. This one is making its living stringing its spare web between the geraniums in the pot and a metal mermaid who perches on the side of the pool.

    • I’ve been seeing more than usual so far this year, Linda. They’re so slender you can miss them and walk into their web. Ick.
