Hi, Jude here again after a long absence. Philip is off galavanting ( well deserved ) after a very busy summer. The spider in our yard that Philip showed you a photo of the other day is actually a "Golden Silk Spider" which is indeed an Orb spider. Legs included he is as big as a mans hand! Although not considered aggressive, she was not too happy with Frank when he accidentally ran into her web with his head. I hadn't seen Frank move that fast in years. It has been an interesting summer for sure. I'll tell you about it over the next week or so.
