Argiope in Triplicate
It was a fine misty morning when it first occurred to me to capture our spectacular writing spider on film - just after she enlarged her script in fact. This was some odd weeks after her first arrival and has been her chosen spot since her first move perhaps ten days ago. She seems to be thriving in this new location and I am looking forward to seeing what new designs she’ll share with us. Or perhaps just me, since DH is rather put off by her presence.
So there has been some distress over my announcement to photojournal (can I use that as a verb?) the life and times of the writing spider in our backyard. See my original post here. I am absolutely fascinated by her goings on so far, though, so I do plan to go forward with the spidery postings. However, for anyone who is simply too creeped out by such leggy critters, I will tag each one with “spider watch 2013” if you would like to block those posts. I promise I won’t hold it against you. :)
Please don’t, I’ll have to unfollow you :( :(
Lol, oh no!! Would it really be so terrible??
Sweet potato, sausage, and spinach stromboli - actually rather interesting.
So my darling husband has been eyeing this little beauty for the last couple weeks, periodically exclaiming that she’s doubled in size. There is a possibility that she has, in fact, grown that much since she first arrived, but I (regretfully) did not think to measure her progress until today. And so begins a photojournal of sorts, documenting the stay of this striking arachnid in the upper right hand corner of our patio door.
That is a seriously beautiful photograph! What a nice visitor, and good luck to catch him on (digital) film.
Thanks! I had to bust out the telescopic lens to get such a great closeup shot - he just wouldn’t let me get close enough otherwise!
Had this gorgeous little visitor in the backyard yesterday. Along with a tiger butterfly, which I was not so lucky to snap a picture of.
Ah ha!! I definitely needed to learn this trick for removing glitter nail polish more easily. Gotta try it next time I rock that glitz!
Back to a little nail art. Wish it made me feel as fun as it looks.
