A Hard Day's Night - What Do You See in the Dark?

A new pup changes your schedule...so it's up and out of bed in the middle of the night sometimes!  It's amazing what you'll find in the dark!

I left this guy (or gal) alone then did a little research.  I think it's a Garden Orb-Weaving Spider common in gardens and not aggressive.  Best of all it's not toxic.  

However a spider ID chart I discovered said, "Be careful not to walk into their webs at night - the fright of this spider crawling over one's face can be terrifying and may cause a heart attack, particularly to the susceptible over 40 year olds."

All this for the love of DOG, Don Diego, the Prince of Ocean Acres!

Hi Laura,

I wish I could say I only see those at night...I see them all the time and they freak me out!  They build the largest webs ever!!

I live in rural Western Colorado. Many years ago during one of our middle of the night walks, Chaco and I scared up a bobcat. That made it really difficult to get back to sleep right away.

Laura - that's one big, scary looking spider. And don't worry about Don Diego(so cute) -as he grows so will his bladder and you won't have to make as many trips out in the middle of the night!

I don't hate spiders, but I do hate the web on my face when I walk into them.

Interestingly enough, just yesterday afternoon I sat for awhile on the front porch and watched a Garden Spider spin an intricate web.  I am always amazed that something so small, with the brain the size of pen head can create something so detailed.    Amazing stuff!
