Fanmail and Golden Orbweaver

Subject: Love this site
October 16, 2015 9:50 am
Good day everyone,
I just stumbled across this site when I googled “orb weaver, egg sac“.  I have a few golden orbs hanging around and just noticed the sacs tucked away…figured they were either egg sacs or snacks saved for later. Your site cleared up that question, as well as identified the weaver as a golden one. I wish I had the finances to donate to your site, I find it absolutely fascinating. However, I’m a Diabled Combat Veteran and on a severely fixed income. If there is anything I could do to help your site, I can donate my time…THAT I have plenty of to spare, please let me know.
We are originally from Buffalo, NY, now in Georgia and I’ve traveled all around the USA and several other countries and have seen many unknown creatures….it’s great to be able to identify some of those critters I’ve encountered throughout the yrs. I spend a lot of time in the yard and garden these days and seem to come across something new  at least once a month.
Thank you to all of you that make this site what it is.
Have a wonderful day and please let me know if there’s anything I can do to help.

Dear Jennifer,
We are so charmed by your fanmail that we are posting it and illustrating the posting with an image of a Golden Orbweaver and her egg sac from our archives.  Your offer to assist is most generous, but though our tiny staff hasn’t the time to respond to all the email requests we receive, there is no easy way to divide the labor.  We still manage to select at least one, and on an average five submissions per day to format and post live to our site.
