Tuftlegged Orbweaver (female)

Mangora placida


Beautiful little spider! She was eating a fly while I took pictures.


Circular web, vertical (perpendicular to ground), around 5 inches in diameter. Between bushes in flowerbed next to my house, in a sunny area.


How can anyone hate spiders after seeing this gorgeous gal?
