August 21, 2007 – Garden Spider

Here’s a nice shot from the garden today. 

This is a strawflower being used as an anchor for a garden spider to weave it web. I’ll claim arachnid ignorance on knowing what this spider is really called – we just call them garden spiders. They usually first appear this time of year and are striking additions to the flowers and raspberries.  I’m glad to see them, because it means fall is finally on the way.
