8 legged homes

Another sign of autumn are the number of spiders spotted around our garden - if they capture insects, especially mossies, stay out of the house, they are earn their keep to stay!

Ok, they are not cute or cuddly but the St Andrews spider has some lovely colours and pattern markings.

The golden orb has been around since about mid summer, however now along with their webs they have got much bigger - the little packages on her web are past meals to show off how good she is at catching her dinner.

I wonder what is hiding in there?  On second thoughts, when they hide in holes that is where they can stay.
