This little tiny yellow spider was about 3/16ths of an inch long and had strung its web between the empty seed-bearing arms of some wild grass.
Both sides of the spiny orb weaver are interesting. A shot lit by flash (not shown here), shows the dark side is actually covered in silk.
Nature shows there is beauty in both life and death.

This common house spider has proven to be a very successful mother. One egg sac hatched this morning. Two others are waiting. An entomological version of the old Contac’s hundreds of tiny time pills.
Deck spider has Saturday brunch fresh off the web.
