Orb-Weaver Spider

Well hello there! Almost walked into the web which was about 7 by 5 feet! It reached from the patio floor to the patio cover. According to a friend of mine this is one of about 1500 species of orb-weavers. They’re beneficial to us two-leggers.

Green Translucent Spider on Cactus

Found this guy hanging out between the cacti. When I searched the web it came up as a Green Lynx Spider. Its body was translucent and the legs had spikes on them. There was no spiderweb. Normally I’m a bit scared of spiders, but this guy didn’t look like it was gonna jump (like the little hairy ones) so I got brave and took this picture 🙂
