Beautiful spider, GG! I haven't seen one like that here.

They're pretty common here. At one point, we had five webs from these spiders in the garden - some in the veggie garden She hung an egg sac from the fence a couple weeks ago, and may be getting ready to have another one.

Aw, really, Kayelle? DH got a good pic of a garter snake in our garden. They eat the critters that would eat our produce!

Every few years, my husband and I go back home to Hawaii.
This photo of an Opah or Moon Fish was taken in 2012 at the Honolulu Fish Auction.
That thing is enormous! That's my foot, size 6 by the way, in the shot to emphasize the point... them's good eats too
The tag on the fish is shows the boat that caught it and the weight, 138 pounds. We had a great time. I had no idea that anyone could just walk in to the auction, watch, bid and buy fresh fish. We saw a couple of families buying Ahi or Tuna for luaus that afternoon.

That's one massive fish, K-Girl! I've had opah in Hawaii, delicious.

Kayelle, I'm glad I didn't post a pic of the 1/3 of a garter snake I found on my front step the other day...whole, live, intact snakes don't bother me. Partial snakes skeeze me out.

Well, I admit to having a phobia about snakes. I can't even stand seeing them on TV.
Like most irrational fears it comes from my childhood when my teen age half brother thought it was cute to tease his 5 yr old little sister with them. He had a ball of rattles from Rattlesnakes hanging on the rear view mirror of his car. I still shiver with the memory.

Another pretty one, GG.

K-girl, the colors in that huge fish are really lovely.
