Really. I step out to my backyard to take some more pictures of the flowers when I see this lovely orb weaver eating breakfast. Fascinating. A bit much, but fascinating all the same.
I’m coming to terms with this basic fact: Spiders love my back yard. Really creepy ones that you don’t want anywhere near you. If they bite, it’s not pretty. I googled it.
Last month it was this little fellow, a Funnel Orb Spider, as it turns out. Not interested in biting humans, but if it did, you’d remember.
They are really big and hairy spiders.
I’m just glad I didn’t walk into her web. I was this close.
Another view- the ventral side. Check out that tummy! That’s a stinkin’ big spider in my yard.
I’m going to start wearing a veil.
