Spider Lady

IMG_8185

This St Andrews Cross Spider was in a web in our yard for all of Summer and she has thousands of babies!  It seemed like she had a new green egg sack every week.

In late May I found her all dried out and dead in her web.  I left her there for a couple of days and then thought I’d like to pop her into a jar to wear as a necklace.  I’ve collected a Chrysalis top from a plant in our yard (I followed a creature from Caterpillar to Butterfly, though did not see if emerge) and wear that so thought it would be nice to have another creature who was a fixture in the yard for a time to wear.

She was quite a bit too large to squeeze into the jar opening so I kept setting her aside and thinking about it.  Unfortunately last night some creature got to her and ate the body, leaving me a pile of legs and a small part of head.  oh no!  Though she is now safely sealed in a jar for me to wear.
