Charlotte and Her Web
I find spiders utterly fascinating...as long as they are not in my house or weaving webs that I have to walk through. And they're really beneficial out in the garden.
This is some kind of orb weaver...(don't click on that link if you're arachnophobic---BIG pix of spiders!).
We had a bunch of these out in our lavender plants a few years ago, and since we didn't particularly want them there, we caught them in a jar and let them go in a canyon down the block. This one is not in my yard...she was hanging off of a tree in a neighbor's yard.
