I Hate Spiders

The title says it all, I truly hate spiders! In the past, I have blogged about an encounter with a spider that I won’t forget.

Well, the other day, I arrived home to see a new web across my front porch and this creepy critter attached to it. Take a look at the image on the back, totally looks like a skeleton and FREAKED me out! But, I had to get close enough to snap a photo to share with all of you!

Apparently, it is a Gasteracantha Cancriformis, otherwise known as a Spiny-Backed Orbweaver.  Whatever it is, the critter is long gone now! It packed up and moved down the street, or something like that!  🙂

    Girlfriend, we live in the WRONG state to be scared of spiders. LOL. Those are around my house all the time. Unless you killed him, he probably isn’t gone so keep an eye out.
