#furroworbweaver

MOST RECENT

The orbweaver is still doing fine, though I think she finds her jar too small to make a web in. So I hand-feed her fruit flies on the end of a paint brush. I was hoping to catch some midges for her this weekend, but there aren't enough out yet. #arthropodsanonymous #arachnids #arachnidsofinstagram #spiders #spidersofinstagram #araneidae #larinioides #orbweaver #furrowspider #furroworbweaver #macro

《Furrow Orb-Weaver》
It’s the beginning of spring and all my beloved creepy crawlers are slowly coming back! 😆
I found several big and fat orb-weavers on a bridge of Brushy Creek hiking trail when I was walking my bushdog late at night.
Unlike most of orbweaver species live for only one year, dying before winter. Furrow orb-weavers are known to overwinter as adults. They are often found in moist areas, especially near water, or on the bridge.(Wikipedia)

《#角類肥蛛》
晚上沒事做,拿了手電筒帶著豆豆在社區內的健行步道亂逛,天還很冷,但我在小溪上的鐵橋上找到好幾隻「肥蛛」😆⋯⋯
心中納悶為何才早春這些圓蛛就已經長的這麼肥大?
回家後查了一下。
一般的北美洲圓蛛類蜘蛛的壽命只有一年,一到冬天就全冷死了,但這種角類肥蛛是圓蛛類中唯一能以成蛛活過寒冬的,怪不得才二月就已經長的這麼肥大😅。

The orbweaver molted yesterday while I was napping! Can't wait for her to be ready to eat again as I have a fresh batch of fruit flies, the lighter golden D. hydei. #dailyspiderpic #arthropodsanonymous #arachnids #arachnidsofinstagram #spiders #spidersofinstagram #araneidae #larinioides #orbweaver #furrowspider #furroworbweaver #bridgespider #molting #fruitfly #drosophila #drosophilahydei #macro

Today she wove the largest web yet! At this rate she will outgrow the basil before spring, knock on wood. #dailyspiderpic #arthropodsanonymous #arachnids #arachnidsofinstagram #spiders #spidersofinstagram #araneidae #larinioides #orbweaver #furroworbweaver #furrowspider #drosophila #fruitfly #macro

The orbweaver molted again! Saved the exuvia (shed exoskeleton) to take pictures of - it's a way to see little details you wouldn't be able to catch with a live spider. E.g. the serrated edges on the chelicerae (jaws/fangs), and the "eye-ports" in the prosoma. #dailyspiderpic #arthropodsanonymous #arachnids #arachnidsofinstagram #spiders #spidersofinstagram #araneidae #larinioides #orbweaver #furroworbweaver #furrowspider #exoskeleton #exuvia #molting #macro

During the day, the orbweaver retires to a curled-up dead leaf. When I mist the plant, she creeps out briefly to drink. This is one of the best times to get a shot of the lovely leaf-shaped pattern on her abdomen. #dailyspiderpic #arthropodsanonymous #arachnids #arachnidsofinstagram #spiders #spidersofinstagram #araneidae #larinioides #orbweaver #furrowspider #furroworbweaver #macro

This big orbweaver has made her home outside my window! She doesn't come out every night, but I do like seeing her. #arachtober #arthropodsanonymous #arachnids #arachnidsofinstagram #spiders #spidersofinstagram #araneidae #larinioides #furroworbweaver #furrowspider #orbweaver

Furrow Orbweaver (Larinioides cornutus) from my porch last week. These spiders are incredibly common this time of year, especially on the outside of houses and other structures near the lake. #spider #orbweaver #orbweaverspider #furroworbweaver #larinioides #larinioidescornutus #arachnid #araneae #araneidae #arachnida

Spider molting: imagine the Sailor Moon transformation sequence except it's someone stuck in a dress in a changeroom trying to wriggle out without tearing it (we've all been there). #arthropodsanonymous #arachnids #arachnidsofinstagram #spiders #spidersofinstagram #araneidae #larinioides #furroworbweaver #furrowspider #orbweaver #molting #spidermolt #ecdysis #macro

This furrow orbweaver's dinner, on closer examination, looked suspiciously like...another furrow orbweaver.

There are always plenty of these #FurrowSpiders #atthefarm after dark.

Prodded this furrow orbweaver out of the shelter she built by weaving two grasses together. A lovely glossy cream-coloured spider. #arthropodsanonymous #arachnids #arachnidsofinstagram #spiders #spidersofinstagram #araneidae #larinioides #larinioidescornutus #furroworbweaver #furrowspider
