The Writing Spider

The Writing Spider, or Argiope Aurantia is a pretty thing. Every summer I watch them weave their webs in my garden. The purpose of the telltale zigzag below the spider, in the center of the web, has not really been determined. Around these mountains in western NC, folks used to think if the spider wrote your name, death was imminent. Fortunately, all I have ever seen is the zigzag.  I fancied up this photo I took with an app on my iPad.IMG_0023
