November 1, 2018

Location: Dade City, Withlacoochee River Park

I am a female Golden Silk Orbweaver,
I don't shave my first, second and fourth sets of legs.
I don't have any hair on the third set
I'm pretty no matter what anyone says.

(Note: Spiders don't really shave their legs, that's just a joke, but I thought it was really interesting that after all these years of looking at these girls I never noticed before that their third set of legs doesn't have any hair.)
