Riverside Place: Warm Weather Brings Spiders Out Of Hiding

Photo: C. Weir, March 11, 2011. Weir describes this spider as "quite big and meaty, maybe an inch long." (Click on photo to enlarge.)

It is most likely an Orb Weaver Spider. Another Red Car Property neighbor captured a great photo of one last fall. Orb Weaver Spiders seem to like living on porches.
