We have bravely ventured out on a night expedition to bring you this species of spider, as it only comes out after dark, the walnut orb weaver.
I find this spider oddly mesmerizing and quite beautiful, it is a spider that is capable of biting people. This one is living in one of our insect hotels and the one below is living on the chicken coop.
It is probably not well known due to the fact it only comes out after dark, so it is much harder to see and may go unnoticed by many people. Hopefully now you may notice this after dark hunter next time you are out late.
