The path of progress has never taken a straight line

August and early September are peak months to see a garden spider – here is a female waiting for lunch to get caught in her web. Jennie Hakes took this photo of a large yellow and black spider, also called the “zigzag spider” due to the ornate vertical weaving in the middle of the web.  At night, the spider eats that part of the web and she reweaves it in the morning. The spider will die this fall, but her eggs will hatch spiderlings in the spring.
