A gigantic bright yellow and black spider weaves its beautiful web. A beautiful butterfly is unfortunate enough to find herself caught in the sticky web. Not too far from Madame Butterfly sits a Praying Mantis, who patiently poses for its excited spectators. Courtney, Elizabeth, Patrick and Hans revel in Mother Nature's garden.

You know what? I have NO IDEA what kind of freaky spider that is!! It sure as heck scares the *&%$ out of me though! I am extremely afraid of spiders (and most creepy crawly things!). BTW, J rescued me today, as he found a garter snake in the basement as I was doing laundry. I know they're harmless, but holy was in the basement!!! Blechhhhhhhhh!

My MIL just told me that that spider's name is a "Garden Spider". Not sure what its Latin name is, but I'm sure that if I weren't so lazy, I could Google it and find out :)
