It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Sally - the wings are incredible on that one.
I haven't seen any ?marks here but there are plenty of skippers. The stick bugs are cute. They look like they need some booties - the kind that go on their feet that is. *Blush*

I've found out since this in an Orb spider, there was a sign there that was calling it a writing spider

I've never seen that writing on a web. I've never gotten a grasshopper to stand still enough for a photo.

Loretta, I think they are more common farther south. In twenty some years at this place I have had about eight- that includes one outburst of three at a time, maybe the kids of the previous year's.
They hang out during the day and seem to like their web parallel to a wall, not across a path like those creepy night time orb guys you get on August.

Do you know what the "writing" means???
It means that she has already been mated with and eaten the male!
Gives all new meaning to "the writing's on the wall"!

Really! That's dark.
Speaking of walking into spiders, we found this guy one year when we opened the front door.

EEK!! Those brown ones usually set up a couple webs here in late summer- Bear in mind when playing hide and seek at night in my yard.

The writing - Wow, Karen, I've never known that. This last one must have really liked it...with the romance novel she wrote Smiling

I actually love Orb Weaver Spiders! I don't want to touch them or walk into them, but they make such beautiful webs!

I agree Karen- to be admired , from a distance. I hope they eat stinkbugs.

Something must eat stinkbugs.
This guy was pretty interesting - we got a good look at him weaving his web.

There've been several ID threads on DG for these- one said they might be called Jewel or Catfaced spiders.
