[This is the beautiful Orchard Orbweaver Spider.  They are very beneficial, as they eat many insect pests, such as flies and grasshoppers.  They are harmless… their bite cannot penetrate human skin.  Sometimes they undergo parasitism by a wasp larva which attaches externally at the junction of the cephalothorax and the abdomen. These spiders are excellent weavers of intricate webs!]

My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original mindfulness sayings and/or poetry that deals with mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I'm a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped. I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy. To follow my unique Blog of "Nature Photos and Mindfulness Sayings" and for RSS feeds to my new posts, please access at: tom8pie.com (On my regular Blog posting pages, for additional information and to follow, simply click on the "tack icon" at the upper right corner... or, on my profile page, you can click on the "Thomas Peace" icon.) Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...

    • Yes, yesterday I had my post and photo ready and set up for today… and when i saw yours i thought:”Wow, what a coincidence!” They are truly a beautiful species! I am very appreciative of many kinds of spiders for their beauty, skill, and intelligence. I’ll be posting another species soon; i was looking at recent shots of it on the computer – deeply admiring it (it is one of my very favorite kinds of spiders). I additionally especially like the various kinds of jumping spiders.

      • I like them as well but find them to be more challenging to photo at times. Especially when they are in the web and you have any kind of breeze moving them to and fro constantly in and out of focus. You got a great shot.
