She's about 1.5 inches stretched out. My camera washed out her beautiful red striped legs. I'm just pleased that she held still for a picture! I think I've traumatized her for life, so I'm leaving her alone for awhile.

We get the big spider webs in October. For now I have the small spider webs stretched all over my tomato plants. They sure have done a great job keeping plant invaders away! I move spiders from inside to outside. Never ever kill them! They are truly great gifts of nature.

Apparently they eat the previous day's web and build new ones the next day.

Nice pet spider, Dawg. Please make sure she doesn't stray far from home - we have enough pet spiders in our house and yard. Unfortunately, none of them are as pretty as yours.

DH took this photo of a garden spider in our patio raised garden. She's got a carpenter bee in her web.
