Orb Weaving Spider Season Returns

This orb weaving spider set up anchors on the patio, the railing, and the gutter, as have many before her, but managed to get a slight twist in her web:

Orb weaving spider - warped web

It seemed to work well, although she packed up and moved on after just one night.

We haven’t seen many orb spiders this year, for unknown reasons.

    Plenty of these creatures here at Kudzu Central. One constructed its web across my frequently-used side door. I like spiders and try to avoid damaging the web by ducking way down and scuttling under the web.
