My New Little Friend

Hi!  I have had a special new 'visitor' living near my front door this summer.  I've named her 'Gianormo'!  She's an orb spider or sometimes called a 'cat-face' spider. She's lovely!

We don't have a lot of spiders her size around here -  too cold - but she has really grown over this summer.  I've watched her eat a moth twice and groom herself once.  Too cool!  BTW, what looks like a cat face is on her back -  or should I say it's the back of her ....EGG SACK!!!!!   WHOOOOOO!  Lots of lil' Gianormos next summer!
