Also Starring: Speckles

Speckles spins her web out front in the big bird of paradise out front. I've only seen her a couple of times so far, once in the center of her web here, and once curled up at the corner looking like a bit of debris with legs.

She's tentatively identified as "having a Zygiella/Parazygiella look" by some of the folk on bugguide who made me smile by describing her as "this beauty" (The actual post is here at the moment, but may not remain for long; they do pretty regular cleanup there, removing old requests for identification and either archiving photos with the proper ID or removing them to make room).

She is lovely, isn't she? The little sketchy design on her back is very chic.

Like Big Spider, she's an orb weaver, but I'm not sure how long it takes her to spin her web. Maybe one of these days I'll catch her starting.
