The Eensy-Weensy Spider

This image shows the underside of an Orb Weaver Spider (that happens to be missing a back leg) - and while not so eensy-weensy - it's actually considered a "good" spider as it traps and eats garden pests such as flies, beetles, and mosquitos. Found this one setting up shop on our honeysuckle vine.

Hi MJ!

I think we have these spiders here in Florida. The first time I saw one I was surprised at how big it was. But they are good critters.

This is a good spider picture. Not easy to get them in focus.
