Kids thought this was evidence of the spider trying to write names in the web. I am sure we kids looked funny standing around looking at this spider and its web with our mouths covered. Even to this day, I am tempted to cover my mouth when I see one!!!
that is so cool, I never heard of that before, but then this is the first time I have ever seen this spider too. May I share this on my Facebook page?
