Oh Jeez.. I really do live in Texas!

Post by Yeti on Tue 07 Aug 2012, 3:43 am

Late evening, and I take the mail up to the post box, or whatever you call it. I have my torch (flashlight) and as usual check to see what's on the side o the house.

What the Fr*****ng heck...

So I then look a little more closely.

I take another shot

And
Think, OH dear, poor spider.

But then find out that the Yellow Orb will actually catch a Gekko, hence the retreat.

"It's a friendly spider, that kills, mosquitoes, bees and wasp....if bitten it's only life threatening to children and old people!

Dam but I love living in Texas!

Never seen those at my house but I was painting my son's room and looked out the window to see a beautiful, healthy black widow.... yay for extremely poisonous spiders in Texas.

I love Garden Spiders! They are awesome! We have one that has set up shop out by our tool shed and we feed it every time we go out to the shed. Very Happy

Went out today to look at it and it started doing its web shake. Now to find a cricket and see if it will take it.

Don't throw it at the center of the web where the zig-zag design is. It's not sticky.
