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
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...
