You Want Hallowe'en? I'll Give You Hallowe'en!

Found this little dark lady in my banana tree...I'm admittedly arachnophobic but I can appreciate her elegance, she is beautifully black and glass-like, her hourglass a brilliant orange-red. She's quite shy, I had to wait until she decided to come back out of her hiding spot after I startled her. A scary but lovely spider.

I'm going to let her be and remember to stay away from the banana tree.

Spiders gives me the creeps too. They're always in my basement...creeping around. But I can appreciate their beauty at the same time...especially their lovely webs. YES, stay away from that tree!
