Web Photos

Sorry but I have not had enough webs sent it to pick Web of the Month Awards any more, but you can still check out past winners and their webs below. I'll still keep putting webs on this page so send them in!  There are 2 types of spiders -  the hunting spiders like the wolf spiders and tarantulas and the web spinning spiders like the Argiopes and Garden Orb Weavers. All spiders can spin silk but only the web spinning spiders spin webs for their homes.  Check out my new page on web construction here. Many thanks for allowing me to use these photos.

Hi Guys, Great site. Here is our "Charlotte". She began as a very small spider in the spring, and got very large over the summer, catching mostly moths, but also a few flies and an occasional Yellow Jacket. This digital night time shot does not do her justice. She has one spine on her back and an interesting dark pattern on her underside. She has moved from the eve, to the ceiling of the covered deck now, to stay out of the cold, and seems to have stopped rebuilding her nest. She seems to be hibernating or sleeping at least, and is getting smaller now - perhaps
just living off her summer fat? We are wondering if these orb weavers live through the winter out in the open like this and make it to spring to start over? We've grown attached to her, and wonder if we should put her inside in an aquarium, with leaves and
bugs, or just leave her alone? Our winters are not very cold - the nights are in the high 30s to low 40s right now, but in late Dec. & Jan. will get a little below freezing. Thanks,
-Val

Hi, Here's a couple of web pix I took. I am terrified of spiders, but I am also amazed by them and their webs. Hope you like the pix.
Bee (I have no idea what kind of spider this is)

Hi Glen: We recently welcomed a new visitor to our outside deck. In looking through your photos, I believe this spider to be a Shamrock Orb Weaver, and I've named her Fiona. She spins such lovely webs, and her anchors are at least 3 ft. long. I'm attaching a photo of her web, which was taken at dusk -- she only seems to come out at night. Plus, I've included a photo of her in the daytime in a corner under the deck -- she is very shy, it seems. I have no clue if she's male or female, but I'm making the call. Thanks,
Johanna, Warwick, R.I., USA

Look at the refracted color on the web shot with a wink light before dawn, the web seems to act as a prism (chemistry of web composition or thickness) while out of focus, the depth of field is the visible grass beyond I an entirely fascinated by the colors of the web which I had never seen before----please use or share as you feel fit, thanks ellen

Hi Glen, Just a short hello to enclose with a few shots of some webs with early morning dew on them. Its nice to catch some in the morning before the sun gets rid of it all., Take care, Eddie

Hi, Donít know much about spiders but I think this guy is a Garden Orb Weaver. I live in San Diego, CA and he/sheís been weaving up a gigantic web in front of our kitchen window. We watch it every night at around dinner time as it does some repairs. Fascinating to watch a spider like that spin. And the web can be quite a sight on a wet foggy morning. Thanks for your site, itís great. Patricia

Dear Glen, I found your site while trying to find out what kind of spider is in the photo and am fascinated by the wallpaper look of the web...the pattern looks like leaves. Any info would be most helpful as it is very near a 3 yr old boys play area. We donít want to relocate it if it is harmless. Appreciate any info you can provide. Yes, you can post the photo too. Many thanks! Donna

Hi, Thank you for helping me identify the spider that has been hanging around my
front porch since last week. I was able to find others like him on  Spiderzrule and have identified him as a Garden Orb Weaver. I am relieved  to learn that he won't harm me, my husband, or our puppy. I have attached a  couple good photos of him and his web. Feel free to post these photos if  you would like to. I live in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, PA. Thank you! Meghan

Hello from Pittsburgh! I found this spider hanging above my walkway at my apartment to the right of the web are pine trees and to the left is our building. No clue what it is but I have a 2 1/2 month old baby and I want to make sure it is not going to bite her!!!... or us!!! Thanks Michael
