I was happy to meet a new spider in the driveway and look: the spider was just as happy to meet me! That’s the really-real smiley face on the underside of an Orchard orbweaver, as found in the not-very-orchardlike corner between trash can and a pot of onions. A new species for me. I’m trying to document all fauna and flora in our suburban yard, and I hope to see more of these beauties.
Look closely at the first pic: see the amazing combs of bristles on her hind legs???! 🕸
Oh, and the species name means “charming.”

Leucauge venusta (orchard orbweaver) with her amazing colors ♥ these are pretty easy to find here in Mexico.
.
This is my 50th post! I'm happy to see what an amazing community I've been part of since I decided to share my hobby: one I felt completely misunderstood about with the people around me and now one that I'm proud of having. I'm so glad I can now be myself and love nature, bugs and, of course and over all, spiders, without feeling alone. Thank you all for your kindness and for sharing and teaching me more about the things I'm passionate ♥

The Venusta (aka orchard) orb-weaver (Leucauge venusta) is a beautiful and common garden spider. Only the females make webs. It was the only spider named by Charles Darwin himself! He named a preserved, silvery spider from Brazil, placing it in the new genus Leucauge and calling it Leucauge argyrobapta. For years researchers tried to find live spiders to compare with the old, damaged, preserved specimen. Finally...they realized the "exotic" tropical L. argyrobapta was the same as the common North American garden spider, L. venusta. Exactly the same! Once preserved, the vibrant spiders lost their colors. The South American spiders were reclassified as L. venusta, and the mystery of Darwin's spider was solved. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Here She is!!!!! “Leucauge venusta” the Orchard Orb Weaver. This is the second species of Ontario Spider that I really wanted @izzitjusme to meet while here in Canada 🇨🇦🇦🇺..... the funny thing about this encounter was, we were out in the backyard (in Toronto) and I was showing her where they like to make their Orb Web’s and trying to describe how beautiful their metallic colours were.....when, “POW” there she was, this immature, little female Orchard Weaver :) #orchardorbweaver #leucaugevenusta #orbweaver #spiderlove #finally #foryou #k&i #dontkillme #please

This little beauty is the Orchard Orbweaver AKA Venusta Orchard Spider, Leucauge venusta. Probably one of the most vibrantly colorful native spiders I have on my property. I really wish they were much large so I could see them better in all their glory. They are quite small & not easy to photograph with the bodies only 3.5 to 7.5 millimeters long. The body also reflects if a flash is used. Like all orbweavers this is harmless & nonvenomous to humans. 💚🐞💚

Arachnid treasure recently received via Monster Post: @lesquelet continues to feed my Rocky Fiore preserved spiderweb habit with this glorious 12" specimen, the web of Leucauge venusta, the orchard spooder.🕸️The first and only time I've seen one of those emerald green beauties in person was at @mountauburncemetery a few years ago. Unlike the orb weavers around my garden, these spooders create their webs horizontally. It was the novelty of spying a horizontal orb web that first caught my attention. I peered down to examine the exquisite web partially nestled in a bush and spotted its creator, a green jewel of a lady, hanging upside-down at its heart.🕷️

S P I D E R • Arañas en el salto del Tequendama (Leucauge venusta)🌱 "El salto del Tequendama es una cascada natural de Colombia, ubicada en el municipio de Soacha en el Departamento de Cundinamarca. Está ubicada a aproximadamente 30 km al suroeste de Bogotá.
Según un mito muisca, se formó por acción divina para evacuar las aguas que inundaban la sabana de Bogotá. Algunos estudios señalan que estas inundaciones coinciden con el retiro de los glaciares tras la última edad de hielo. Esto sucedió hace dos o tres milenios y dio lugar a una inundación que cubrió la laguna, lo que obligó a algunas generaciones muiscas a emigrar a tierras más altas"
