Amongst the flower bed is a Golden Orb Spider... We have been watching her for the past month... her body was fat and round but a week ago she she dramatically reduced in size and with some careful searching I have found her clutch of eggs... held within a beautifully spun gold Orb... hence the common name... Now we are watching for the spiderlings... how long will it take... the last clutch I watched were gobbled up by wattle birds... let's hope this little family is suitably camouflaged ... it's amazingly in the open... but there is nowhere to perch and peck #mygarden #biodiversity #thegoodlife #urbanwildlife #goldenorb #spidersweb #inthegarden #gardeningaustralia #opengardensvictoria #allcreaturesgreatandsmall #arachnid #spidereggs #natureskingdom #naturalwonder
