Orb Spiders

This gentleman has taken up residence right outside my patio door. He weaves his web every night around sundown, and every morning he pulls it up out of the way again.

It's nice to have good neighbors.

According to the Pugh collection he is an orb weaver, one of the most common spiders in North Carolina. Although he is huge, he is harmless. Except if you are a bug, that is.

I think that he has attracted a mate, because now there are two of them.
