Garden Spider ID challenge: Is Spider #2 same as Spider #1? Check my Blog which shows 3 spider photos to compare. The problem is her (yes, it’s a female) abdomen increases in size as she prepares to lay eggs. Markings change with expansion and contraction of abdomen…And if you think Spider #3 is same as Spider #1, what about the black line thru left center yellow blob?


I can’t wait to hear what you think. Please share this so people put their brooms down and pay more attention to spiders! I just had to add Spider #4!

The books and a booklet series based on each different yarn craft topic covered in "The Yarn Animal Book" (pompoms and other really easy yarn crafts, knitting, crocheting, rya, needlepoint and embroidery), are available on Amazon and Kindle.
