Garden Orb Weaver Spider

The Garden Orb Weaver spider comes in many colours and sizes.

We were fascinated in watching this Orb Weaver in our garden in Sydney Australia. It is qhite amazing how they instinctively know how to spin and knot that web in order to achieve that beautifully perfect round web. Almost like knitting, knit one, purl one.

Orb weavers aren’t considered a significant threat to humans. In fact, they are considered beneficial to have around as they consume pests like mosquitoes and beetles that can cause problems for you and your plants. These spiders are not aggressive and rarely bite unless they are threatened and cannot escape.
