I don't mind spiders, but after having dealt with what I think was a spider bite on my knee earlier this month (all is well), I am not happy to see this mass takeover of my property.
In the almost 30 years we've lived in this house, we've never seen anything like this. Last night, in the glow of what photographers call the "golden hour", webs shone in the sunset. Please enjoy:
Spider and a web on the back porch. The spider was not white; the sunlight was glowing off of him/her. I don't know about spiders and this website led me to believe the spider I saw is a "grass spider". I am sure one of my readers will figure it out.
If it is a grass spider, they are considered beneficial - a good thing.
I know I won't be complaining about it in a month, but right now, this is one part of early fall I do not enjoy.
But I am grateful for being to observe nature right in my backyard.
