Late Summer Garden Visitors
This Black and Yellow Garden Spider spun her web in our sunflower patch. She is a member of the orb weaver family of spiders and will lay her eggs in a sack on the edge of the web where the baby spiders will hatch and over winter until next spring.
Not sure, but I would call these guys love bugs. The spider set up in a good location right beneath them.
This little guy fell into a bucket in the barn. Lucky that I noticed him while I was clearing a few things out or he might have been there for a while. I let him spend the afternoon in the kids aquarium, so they could take a good look at him when they came home from school.
Midland Brown Snake - great news- they never bite!
