Your letter to the bugman: I am a Huge bug fan! I am a commercial photographer by day and a wildlife and macro photog for fun. I cam across this little one in the garden last night and I had never seen colors on a spider like that..just wanted to see if it in fact was a Red and Green Orchard Spider.
So happy to have found your site! It is AWESOME!
How you want your letter signed: Many Thanks!! Caroline
You are correct. This is indeed an Orchard Spider, Leucauge venusta, and your image is positively gorgeous. We hope you consider sending other high quality images of the insects and bugs you find.
