These spiders are all over the woods – July 28 2007

Every year at this time these Spined Micrathena spiders (Micrathena gracilis) start making their webs. I love their abdomins.  They look like they’re made of porcelain.

Their webs are in the shape of  a CD, with a hole in the middle that they can get through to the other side.  Three anchor threads are use to secure the web.
