I am beginning to notice this.
Thank you so much for taking the time to send the links. I spent a lot of time on the first spider, and kept going back and forth on it. It came back to its old spot the other day after a couple of days elsewhere, and had grown in size. My husband doesn't like spiders, so I was glad it is outside.
Off topic a little, I've seen discussions for an insect database here. I tell you, I'd be happy with an insect forum that was not only related to identification.
