In August of last year, I encountered a rather large, and strange looking spider in my back yard. As I said then, I’m not all that fond of spiders. I don’t hate them, but I’m not in love with them either. I had never seen this type of spider before last year and it caught me off guard.
Well, recently, I encountered the same kind of spider in my side yard. I’ve been told that it’s a yellow garden spider. Unlike the last one I encountered (that ended up hitching a ride on my skirt one day [O_O]), this spider had itself a little snack wrapped up in its web. Eww.
Luckily the state of Maine is void of any poisonous spiders and snakes (or so I’ve been told), but for those of you out there that live in areas that are home to poisonous spiders and snakes, be careful!
Until next time…
