i was shocked to see so many myself, now i just have to get over the fear of sticking my hand in the plant when they get bigger, dunno why they just creep me out when they get big. and on youtube i saw a praying mantis attack and almost kill a hummingbird, freeeeeaky!! would rather have spiders :)
Awesome shot of the spiders! Although i have a great love for nature I absolutely hate spiders...every night around this time of year it seems i walk through at least a couple webs, been finding them in the house here and there, in the car, wtf. I could see how those garden spiders could be useful in eradicating insects, however don't they piss, shit, die on plants? That is a big black widow, and to think that thing could end your life or put you in the hospital, been finding brown widow egg sacks around the property and heard they are worse.
Much respect, WS. I'll save rattlers, but not black widows. We have some kind of bee that keeps showing up at the sliding door to the back deck, which is right below a register, so I'm wondering... do we have a nest of some type of bee up there in the attic space? Better ID the bee. I keep catching them and setting them loose, which may or may not be the best thing.
I have about 6 toads on my back porch, every morning I have to sweep toad turds away, it's nothing but Beatle shells and such. I like the shark fin thing also,down by my gate there's always webs,it's like your ghost slapping bitches away. LOL. STR8
