This is kinda funny Bob. I've never seen one posted anywhere before, then today I've seen two. I follow insect macro very carefully and only today haveI seen this spider. Down here I doubt we get this variety. Gorgeous colours and good shots bob :-)

Heres what Ken posted today....snap

Yep, a "marbled orb" spider. They come in a variety of colors and very similar patterns; and are seen in small to quite large. I've seen the 'orbed' body size from 1/4 inch to 1 inch in diameter.

I 'kinda' like spiders - at least to take pictures of; and try to follow a "live and let live" policy. Any caught in the house are set free outside.

Nice shots:|. Third pic is the best, I like the shadow it casts.

(edit-'spider' was 'spuder'. I hate miz-pelling.lol)

Recipe for Marbled Orb Chowder

INGREDIENTS:
3 tablespoons margarine
1 onion, finely diced
3/4 cup Marbled Orb Spiders
3/4 cup chopped celery
2 cups sliced carrots
2 teaspoons salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 cups chicken broth
3 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 cup cold water
1/4 cup cornstarch
DIRECTIONS:
Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until tender.
Add carrots and celery and cook for 10 minutes or until carrots become a little tender. Add water or broth, and stir in Marbled Orb spiders, add salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil and allow to simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until all vegetables are tender. Add milk and parsley and heat just to boiling. In a separate bowl stir cornstarch into cold water. When completely dissolved add to hot soup, stir and serve.
