Gary hasn’t posted in a while so I’ll pick it up with a spider for the day. Hope we hear from him soon as well.
In the same meadow, MacLeod Field, where I found the Viceroy I also saw a few orb webs and their creators. This one is especially lovely with some vivid colorful abdomen markings. Who describes a spider as lovely?
Lined Orbweaver-Mangora gibberosa in a galaxy of dewdrops. Ordinarily there would be a thicker circular mass of webbing surrounding the spider but that was absent here. Maybe it just hadn’t got around to it before the dew settled.
