Day-glo Spider!

For Roda’s Critter Connection Challenge

This is apparently Araneus cucurbitinus

Not a great picture as the little beggar kept moving. I am told this is an unusually brightly coloured individual. It is only 1cm long but certainly shone in the sunshine!


I have a few more posts in the planning stages but need to take a break for a few days. Work stress is taking a heavy toll especially and I am feeling decidedly not OK today and just want a long hug.


        1. It is. I have a lovely cosy room with oak beamed ceilings in an old coaching inn. The downside is it overlooks the main road so it is a good thing I am half deaf anyway! Thanks for the relaxed vibes! 😊

        1. Spiders (& this one is indeed lovely, Darren) I can handle (so long as they’re outdoors or not deadly) – and even mice and rats in small numbers — but now you’ve brought up cockroaches, Nicolle — eeek!

  1. Wow! Normally IΒ΄m not a big fan of spiders (although I know how much good they do in a garden) but this one looks like right out of a coloring palette! Hope youΒ΄re feeling better already but sending you a big hug just in case! πŸ˜€

    1. Yeah – it was OK in the end. Pretty much got left alone which is my kind of day! And even though I had only been away for two days it apparently merited welcome-back hugs from my work friends Helen and Jacky. Hugs are always welcome.
