A neighbor of Silver Lake blogger Diane Edwardson came across the spider pictured above in the pergola above his front gate. Jonathan Vandiveer said the spider has been busy doing what spiders do:
“It had been making some extremely big webs lately (I think). Some of them, tens of feet wide. Watch your small dogs and cats!”
Edwardson, who earlier came across an equally scary-looking and mysterious plant, is now seeking help to identify this hairy-legged Silver Lake resident.
