There was lots of excitement at our house yesterday morning
about this....

Merritt spotted it first, when he was taking out the trash.
Its web is above the trash bins between our roof and the neighbor's tree.

Its funny because spiders usually cause a different kind of commotion around here. Especially when they are large like this one.
This time there was amazement and intrigue.
As they left the house to walk to school they were shouting,
"Take care of the spider mom. Make sure it has enough to eat."
That last part won't be a problem.
It caught a couple of flies already...

Maybe this spider will be the one thing that can rid us of those pesty flies that love the trash can.

It's weird that it was found over the trash cans, because I was just thinking that this looks like a spider that I found in San Diego on a dumpster. We couldn't find out what kind it was so we figured it was new and named this new species the "North American Dumpster Dwelling Bearded Card Spider"!
