I see those all the time!!! I love their webs and the zigzag pattern. If you get really close to the web they move in a way that makes the whole web go back and fourth, and the egg sacks are HUGE!!! About the size of a quarter! I love them...but I wouldn't wanna pick one up or have it crawl in my pants Shocked

yes - we get those orb spiders this time of year - they are huge - one fall I was cleaning up my yard and I scooped up an armful of leaves and thought I had a baby mouse in my hand (something small and kind of fuzzy.....)  well, you can guess it was a gigantic spider and I almost had a heart attack.  Shocked  They are pretty cool though - and their webs are amazing!

holy crap.

you guys are brave.

I'm TERRIFIED of spiders. I feel like my skin is crawling now, lol. I can't even look at itty bitty daddy long-legs without freaking out.

The pics are really awesome though.. and the spider itself is pretty interesting looking.
