Welcome to the Spider’s Lair

posted in: Insects, Spiders | 0

It’s October and time for the scary ghosts and goblins to come creeping out for the fall. Well, for me anyway. I love this season, the changing leaves, the cool night, warm mornings that fade to crisp afternoons. I also spend more time out hiking about all the beautiful parks, rivers and forests near our home. I came across this lovely little specimen of terror, well, for bugs and small insects that fall prey to it’s incredible web building techniques.

Please leave a comment if you know what this lovely spider is called. In Japanese or English, both are fine. I see a lot of these around and the bright colors tell me I should keep my distance.
