First, let me say I do NOT like spiders; well, except for this one. For some reason I've never been afraid of the garden spider. And I am "terrified" of any other spider! Anyway, I've been watching this one in my flower bed, & today I noticed her egg sac. I've read that once they make their sac, then they weaken & die in the early fall. So, I guess her days are numbered.:sad2: Anyway, I thought they were interesting pictures.
