The Not-So-itsy-bitsy spider

IMGP3967Image by nismax95 via Flickr...was hanging on my house.
This is the second spider I have found hanging around outside my house. They build webs that stretch from the trees to the ground... BIG webs.
Oddly enough, this guy seems to be short a leg. I have no idea what kind of spider it is or if it's dangerous. All I know is I was quite creeped out by it when I almost walked into it's web. Then, oddly enough, had to run back inside to get the camera and take it's picture! *shrug* Here are some other spider pics I've taken around the house. IMGP3820IMGP3893

We call them Fall Weavers. They start showing up late summer/early fall. I know the season is changing when I see them building webs. I can't believe you've never seen them before, they are everywhere! What their rightful name is I don't know, but I know they're orb spiders.

Glad you didn't walk through the web! Cobweb in the face is one of the worst feelings. yuck.
