We interrupt our expose on the RCC to bring you a home-grown look at one of God’s creatures: the black and yellow garden spider, aka “zipper” spider. It gets its name from the zig zag pattern in the center of its web. We spotted 7 (yes, seven) of these fellas along our front porch. They are harmless to humans but helpful in pest control, so we left them alone…..after we picked at one a little bit to see it do its thing: shake its web. Below is our video. Below that is another much more fascinating video on these long-legged buggies.
