Here's one of our summer friends, an orb weaver who has spun a large web in the carport. That's Forrest's hand and pen for a size comparison.
I'm not sure what type of orb weaver we have here. If anyone knows, I'm all ears.
When I showed F. this picture, he said, "Oh, that's a good one for your WEB page."
Yes, we have big spiders in Florida. Forrest made the mistake of sending his mom (in California) a picture of one of them, a large wolf spider as big as the coffee mug it was hanging on.
She has never come to visit us.
