My Pet George by dmariewms

My Pet George

This is a Golden Orb spider that we consider a pet, we have had at least one per year for the last 28 years, so we refer to her as George XXVIII. The bundles on the web are stored food. We like her because she keeps the bugs from coming inside. This was taken outside the kitchen door with the porch light on and my husband shining a flashlight. View it large and you'll see how hairy her legs are.
Great detail!

Great shot - that spider looks very interesting. I like that food storage system, I have never heard about that before.

Great shot- but not crazy about BIG spider pictures, so I'll take your word on those leg hairs.
