Meet Audrey, the Rusty Red Neoscana also known as Spotted Orbweaver. She’s named after the daughter in The National Lampoon movies since she’s female (larger size—almost half dollar size now, brighter markings) and we couldn’t use Rusty—my brother’s genius idea...unfortunately, I can’t take credit for it. It’s hard to get a good picture of her because she only comes out at night, builds her web to catch bugs to eat then leaves by dawn, and although #spiders are literally in my top 3 of worst fears there’s something kind of fascinating about her.
For right now, we are letting her be, and when the time comes we will catch her and release her down the road by the creek, because, you know, it’s the “right thing to do.” But in the meantime, let her eat all the freaking mosquitos she wants. #spottedorbweaver #spidersofinstagram #spidergram #worstfear #tryingtobekind #naturegram
