Well, not quite

"The report of my death was an exaggeration." --Mark Twain
Imagine my surprise yesterday when I spotted my aging argiope friend STILL ALIVE! "Oh, my goodness, I'm SO sorry," I told her. "I told everyone that you'd died!"

Not only is she still with us, but she appears to be putting on more weight. Again. Another egg sac perhaps? Surely, she'd set a record for one argiope season if that happened. We shall see.

Nature. Surely that butterfly can't be that tasty. We haven't had one of these spiders in our garden for a couple of years. They always left their sacs on the wall, which I thought a foolish place. Maybe that was the reason for their failing to reproduce.
