Marbled Orb Weaver

Marbled Orb Weaver at Tombigbee National Forest (Mississippi). Came close to stepping into his web on a hike. He climbed pretty high up, so I sat on Zac's shoulders to take this picture, ha! Beautiful spider, those colors are pretty fancy pants! Macro Monday Mellow Yellow

I found one in some pretty deep woods this last summer. Nice macro.

Not cute - no, even I can't find this one cute - but quite beautiful, in her own, leggy kind of way.

Is that for real?
Rather pretty, in a scary sort of way.

Kind of looks like writing on its yellow bum.

Kate said...

Wow. That's gorgeous. Do you know anything about them? Hopefully good for the gardens and no poisonous bites?

GrandmaK said...

Yes, indeed a beautiful spider. Well done! Cathy
