Arachnophobia:  “A pathological fear or loathing of spiders.”

If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you know that I am an arachnophobe. Spiders and I do not get along. They creep me out more than just about any other insect (the large flying cockroaches we had in Hawaii are about equal with spiders).

Yesterday, I saw this very large spider in a web outside my window. Being that there was a pane of glass between the spider and me, I was able to get up close to watch it catch and devour a fly. I have tried searching the internet to identify what type of spider this is, but have not had any luck.

The spider is now gone and I hope I never see it, or any of its relatives, again.

  1. I’d guess an orb weaver Maralee. A harmless and useful garden spider. I’d say Google it but not if you’re creeped out by them. They do come in some beautiful and colorful patterns.

I'd love to hear from you
