Exciting news about the spiders in my recent post. A cube-buddy who is an entomologist said what I captured in the photos was mating behavior of the European garden spider. He also passed along this awesome link to spider information, which has some great spider pictures!
The female is the spider in the center of the web. The male is the one with long legs who gingerly approached her from the spruce tree. If you click on the picture below you can notice the tips of one of their legs touching. How sweet!
