Orb weavers at work

Round and round she goes. Yesterday, I watched one Neoscona oaxacensis (Western Spotted Orbweaver) do spokes for her web, another one (in another web) was already putting in the wider spiral from the center towards the outside. Today I was too late to video any of that, but everybody was busy putting in the narrowly-parallel rounds of sticky thread - this time from the outside inward. With great accuracy, despite of the wind. And tomorrow morning she'll take it all down to do it again between 4 and 5 in the afternoon. Have a successful night Ariadne!
