Today I was alternately grossed out and charmed by nature and learned a few new things along the way too.
First the gross stuff. Well part of it is interesting. We have this humongous garden spider that has made a web near the side entrance door. Anna has named it Allie. We have been watching it get bigger and bigger. We have watched her capture and eat a June bug or two, and yesterday Anna fed her a great big Tomato Horn Worm.
This is Allie. She is an Argiope aurantia and is about 4 inches long right now.
