Meet our Garden spider! We have been watching her for 5 days.
From below, you can see a reddish-brown spot. That is the spinneret (where the silk is produced) by the Garden Spider. I’ll try to get a picture in better focus… She pulls the silk out with her hind leg and attaches it to create her orb-style web.
She is also known as the Zipper spider. We’re going to follow her adventures for as long as she stays here. The question is, what is the zipper for? Please send your thoughts!!!
