I guess everone has heard of the rain storm Texas got. Well, I opened the door to check the weather and saw one long spider web with a spider hanging on for dear life. It's beyond me how it was hanging on, with all the wind. A little later I took him down to get a closer picture. After that I put him in a large glass, which I took outside and laid on it't side so the spider could eigther stay inside or go out in the rain. Last check, he was still dry inside the glass spining a web.
I think he might be in the crab spider family. What do you think?

Yes, Orb spider! I had one by my shed a couple of years ago-so exotic looking! I pretty much leave the spiders alone to do their thing, too, except for those big Yellow ones-Get out the GUN!
