This is the web of a Golden Orb Spider. A masterpiece of a spider with yellow and black markings. It is also known as the writing spider because the center of the web reminded someone of handwriting.
Could this spider be the inspiration behind Charlotte’s Web writer E.B. White’s character Charlotte, who wrote messages in her web for the farmer?
The Pitney Meadows Community Gardens are a great place to imagine and get inspired. Come and see.
