Not sure just what this is, so I just call it Orange Dragonfly.

I love spiders, they creep me out on occasion, like when you walk face first through their webs and then see them dangling off the peak of your hat a few minutes later, but I still love watching them and seeing the beautiful work they do with their webs. Here's a few of my spider web shots.

Meet the Golden Silk Orb Weaver aka Banana Spider-a very very common sight in Florida during the summer. While the spider itself is an impressive size it is it's web that is even more impressive. Their webs can be 6 feet in diameter. Their webs are, I'm told, also very strong and very sticky and I have come within about 2 inches of running into a few face first. Because they make their webs so big it is easy for them to build one across forest paths and this is how you almost run into them.

I’ve had this photo in my camera roll for a while, and for the life of me I couldn’t figure out what I was taking a picture of. This has driven me insane for a while now. I showed the picture to my sister, and she was able to find the subject! Can you?

I believe that I see it. Hard to tell what it is but maybe a dragonfly.

Yup. The quality is better on my phone, and I can see two tails.

I had to look up Mayfly. While I have heard of them I did not know what they looked like. Yep I found it for sure but the tails are not visible in the above above. Cool post I learned something today. Always a good thing!
