So how do you like the spider? It’s a Banana Spider or Golden Orb Spider and they’re pretty common here in Florida. They especially like to build their webs across trails to catch the bugs flitting around in the open space. The problem is they tend to build the webs right at face level and if you aren’t looking where you’re going… face full of web and a rather large spider. Fortunately, they aren’t dangerous to humans—normally.
I’ve included a photo of this lovely lady for two reasons. First, I’ve been so damn busy finishing up the first draft for Return to Cooter Crossing cobwebs are growing on this blog and, secondly, because one of these spiders plays a major role in the follow up to Dark Love, which I just started.
