SPIDERS~ are by far my most favorite thing to observe, photograph and learn about, so far at least

the first of my 'really good' photos of a spider
all the whilst I was learning how to take photos.

Then there are the Argiopes, a large 
group of orb weavers within themselves...high on my list
of favorite arachnids.

Black and Yellow Argiope with cicada
so you can see how large and spectacular these
arachnids are.

also called the banana spider

The Banded Argiope are also wonderful
there appear to be two species, I still need to learn
how to tell the difference...

check out his EYES, all of them

spinners at work

and weaving her web to catch a meal.. so meticulous 
and careful...like a slow dance ...

amazing, freaky and oh so large, here seen 
with her egg sac in the weeds...
