Bettina Two

Last year, Bettina One had a one-meter web between the basil and one of the columns of the archway on the front veranda. I took many photos of her. This year, Bettina Two created her ever-enlarging web between the morning glory and the basil on the kitchen veranda. I have watched her grow from approximately one centimeter (3/8") across to her current size of 2.5 centimeters (1"). I think she is beautiful.
I don't dislike spiders in fact I admire them but, Bettina Two seems to understands that her place is outdoors. The detail and delicacy of this is fabulous.

@joysabin Thank you! I agree; they have a job to do and I am in favor of that long as they do it not where I am. :)

She certainly is a beauty and you have captured her every detail. Seems with that growth, she is catching her prey very effectively.

Thank You all very much! Bettina Two has still not built her nest. I check on her every day as she is so full of eggs. I appreciate all of your comments.

@mona65 Thank you so much for the lovely check-in. I am doing so much better, but still have problems with the weight of my camera. My doctor says it could take a year for full recovery so I am following all the rules so I don't make it longer. I will start bit by bit.
