A Cool New Backyard Visitor!

One of the joys about moving, and there are but few, is discovering the new critters inhabiting your property! My wife found this Spinybacked Orbweaver hard at work in our yard yesterday.


  1. There it sits, planning the extinction of mankind.

  2. Very speccy! One of our species in the same group is known as the Christmas spider. Not sure if that's because they're common in summer or because of their festive appearance. Maybe it's a little of both?
