Dinner Time

We have plenty of these spiders in the garden – the Cross Spider, or common garden spider. They weave the most spectacular orb webs. This one is particularly well fed, with a large, rounded abdomen. As you can see, this one is feeding on an insect, previously caught in the web.

This is what I love about the spider, during the morning they take the web out so other animals didn’t notice the trap then when the sunset is near they weave again, fast and quick to catch some food. They are very clever at making traps to get food.

I love the industriousness of the spider. No matter how many times their house was damaged they keep on rebuilding it again and again.

When you think about it, it’s a very strange and fascinating world we live in. The idea of making webs to catch their food is an incredibly complex thing for a little insect. How did evolution lead to that detail? Again, great photo, Carrie.

I think the point Christer is trying to make Carrie, is that nature has this inner evolutionary wisdom, as opposed to human intelligence. Nature leaves us so many unanswered questions. Mmmmmm! Still don’t much like spiders Carrie!

You have such a great knowledge on the spider, I had no idea about any of these facts. The picture is amazing. I love the patterns on the spider’s body.

Sharing a Post

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
