Some-days are Diamonds....



Whilst walking along the creek bed  I came upon this magnificent Golden Orb Spider
with it's golden gossamer web glistening in the sunlight.
I 've been told that this type of spider is reluctant to bite
needless to say I kept my distance.

It is a beauty! Thats one of the nice things about living here in Yorkshire, most if not all of our wildlife is not at all dangerous.

I've always thought those ones were harmless. Still big and hairy though.

I love your new blog! It's my first visit. It's strange to see spider webs but we are flip-flopped in our seasons.

Gorgeous photos!

It looks a beautiful day. You have done well to capture the golden glint of the web. Ewww I don't like spiders.

diane b:- No I don't like spiders either but the web looked really pretty

I believe these spiders are harmless but I also would not want to get too close.

Love seeing the green in your first pic. If only it was a little like that here in Perth!
