JHC Spider/Web

Today’s topic is very timely for me.  I spotted this spider outside last night,  just before I was ready to go to bed.  He/she was larger than those we usually have in the yard so I grabbed my camera and took a quick shot!

  2. How big was the “designer” spider with spiked legs? I sure hope I don’t ever meet one.

  3. Wow!! That’s a big spider, and although I’m not that keen on spiders, I have to admit that he/she is quite beautiful.

  4. The body was only about an inch long. Legs were long, so about 4 inches including the legs.

    Orb Weaver. It looks like Araneus diadematus – a common European Garden Spider -female :
    They are about 18mm or so in size.

    Not harmful to humans.
