KS Spider


This gal has been spinning evening and morning webs in front of our house that are amazing.  Spanning more than 10 feet from porch to the nearest tree, she makes the 2-3′ web twice a day.  In-between, she rests in the flag holder on our porch.

The family says “kill her” sensing danger; however, I marvel at her work ethic and beauty.

She seemed to be sleeping this afternoon and allowed me to get close enough to her for a photo op.  What kind of spider is she?  And is that an egg sac above her?

She catches bugs.  She helps guard our house from invaders.  I believe I’ll keep her around.
