Great image Karin. :D

I have a Golden Orb couple that has moved onto my stoep. I must go and see if I can get a few shots today.

I use to have one on a stoep and she was a beauty I fed her husky dog food . and loved to watch her She caught a lot of mozzies in her web too .. but then MIL came to stay and she was so proud of the fact that she cleared out my stoep of all the nasty spiders with doom then used the feather duster to knock them down .. MIL nearly was doomed by me and chased out the house with a feather duster .The little male even though such a skinny lad was also in attendance .. but very shy I suppose he didn't want to be lunch for her too.

Well ...... SOMEBODY has to stand up for those poor , diminutive downtrodden males whose existence in an Amazon dominated world is only tolerated and valued as an after satisfaction snack ......... :roll:
