    Ain’t nothing quite like diddy-booping along through the woods, running headlong into a web and having one of these sprawled across your face…

    There was a discussion over at Marko’s recently about these spiders – this one is what I’ve always called a ‘garden spider’ or a ‘bumblebee spider’.

    The zig-zag stitching in the center of the web is characteristic.

  3. SayUncle Says:

    we call them writing spiders.

    In NC we had one bush in our front yard that had one such spider nesting and hatching eggs every year for a couple of decades at least.

    We called them “Orb Weaver Spiders” because that what my Dad called them.

    And yes, I learned to wisk a stick around in front of my face when walking down paths in the woods, specifically because of spiders like these.

    We called them “banana spiders” in New Orleans. My wife saw her first one last week in St. Augustine. Said that she’s not leaving the street to walk in the woods anywhere south of Virginia, again….

    Yep, they’re big and scawy…and harmless.

  7. Robert Says:

    Managed to wave off folks from killing one at the 600 yard slab and cover at Panola….we did dispatch an alien queen sized black widow under the concrete firing bench though…

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
