My daughter called me over her house because she wanted me to see a monster spider. It was night and with a spotlight I was able to get this. I think it is a Cross Orb Weaver female. It is wrapping up a tasty moth. It wasn't as big as I thought but it did have a big body. Her home is under a shingle on my daughters front porch.
This is a spider along side my flower garden. There are a lot more spiders building webs and getting ready for winter. I think this is a Funnel Web Spider.
I was taking my grandson Soccer Boy to the library to get a book. I saw something in the tree across the street. Can you see it? I got my camera and went for a better look.
Yes, it was a nest of black paper hornets and the nest was well on it's way.
The light post had something funny going on. A group of Yellow Jackets were having a pow-wow.
they then singled filed into their home. What a funny sight to see.
