These spider reach maturity in the fall and they are large. Their orb webs can be two feet in diameter, and they incorporate a zigzag artifact, called a stabilimentum, that still has scientists guessing as to its purpose.
I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.
Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.
