Why did the
female marble orb weaver
cross the road?
Because the grass is always greener on the other side…or something.
This little spider was crawling across my driveway as I came back from the studio. You know, the studio is really not that far away from the house and yet the amount of interesting nature I see between here and there is quite remarkable. Today mama marbled orb weaver was taking a little jaunt. Chances are that she has laid her eggs, or possibly she is looking for a good place to do just that. October is the month that they choose to do this although she’ll be around until frost.
All I know is that she is difficult to photograph well, she is constantly moving and I didn’t have time to really set the camera up correctly. But I think you’ll agree that she is beautiful. And the orange/yellow is very striking against the green of the grass.
