For the last week or so, this little lady has appeared in the middle of her web at night, but hides during the day. She is Garden Orb-weaving Spider, possibly Eriophora biapicata, but I am not sure. She is actually about the size of my little finger-nail, but her web is quite large, and incoveniently spun on the veranda post at my back door. Unless careful, it is easy to walk through it by day. She is very industrious and carefully mends the web each night so that in the morning after capturing and wrapping a variety of moths and other insects, damaging the web in the process, there is a perfect web once more. Last night I was delighted to see there was a second, smaller spider spinning its web a couple of metres away……now I have two to watch………..my apologies to those who do not like them, I find them rather lovely.
