Garden critters

Garden critters

Garden orb spider and her smaller boyfriend,he was brave enough to spin his web behind hers.They swung in the breeze each waiting for something to be caught in their webs…patient indeed.Every evening she will spin an elaborate web that spans between our verandah posts,and in the centre she waits.Before dawn she has packed up her web and curled up almost impossible to find, hiding in the brown sinews of tangled star jasmine that grows along our verandah.
Note.. boyfriend made just the cameo appearance…i fear he became part of her meal…look out boys!
