    Hadn’t seen this species of Argiope before.

    A nice Argiope. I think this species live overseas in Europe, maybe.

    I prefer the bold to the drab: http://t.co/luM5zxH2Xs

    Size is impressive and all but she’s only ever going to sit there. I like a bit of interaction: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79UTtNLtRCY

    Black-and-yellow-striped beasties I have now seen:
    fly: check
    wasp and bee: check
    beetle: check
    spider: check
    So which one doesn’t belong?

    spiders are one of my favorite creatures I enjoy those the ones that live in my house, and it is a great joy when one of the big ones shows up in the garden. not often enough I am afraid.
    I hate seeing them misrepresented in movies.

    Uncle Froggy,

    Punctuation, sometimes you really need it, I’m afraid.

    Ooooh, pretty! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a spider with so brightly coloured an abdomen.

    @JohnnieCanuck

    I’m fairly certain that the comma after “Punctuation” should be a semi-colon. A full stop or colon would work too. If I’m wrong, then I apologise. If I’m right then, “Oh! The irony!” etc.

    Garden spider molting and mating…. at the same time even. From my backyard.

    No, it needs a whole colon.
