During our travels yesterday I came across this amazing and beautiful orchard orbweaver spider, or the Leucauge venusta. Though venomous they are no threat to humans at all. These spiders are generally photogenic, but if frightened they will drop to the ground, fast, and hide under leaves.

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.”

Orchard Orbweaver
------------------------------
Found this guy in the garden this spring, forgot about the captures until now. It was startling how fast he could move around his web 🕷️😳

Thanks to my hubby, I found this beauty yesterday on my front yard, the gorgeous orchard orbweaver. It was not easy to photograph because her back was facing to the ground but totally worth it. What a delicate and beautiful insect, the colors of this spider look amazing in real life !

Little Mabel Orchard Orbweavers (Leucauge argyrobapta) are such friendly looking little spiders with that fluorescent smiley on their abdomens 😍

Also, I learned that they are often social, attaching their webs together when prey is abundant!

🕷The Orchard Orb-weaver (Leucauge venusta) is the only spider species that received its nomenclature directly from Charles Darwin himself. He discovered this beauty in the heart of Rio De Janeiro, Brazil in 1832. Like most arachnids the males are smaller in size but still display beautiful vibrant colors. The females however are the only ones that build a web.

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. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A cool looking spider I found along the trail while looking for birds and gators, the Mabel Orchard Orbweaver. The orchard orbweaver is a colorful, delicate spider that makes circular webs that are usually positioned horizontally. They live in damp woodlands and swamps of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas. Many animals eat their eggs. Hummingbirds, vireos, and warblers steal webs from spiders in order to build their own nests.

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

Nice walk around my boyfriends house with a flashlight and my dslr with the new macro lens. Still learning - I took 60 photos and ended up with about 12 good ones. Macro and bugs is going to take a bit more work for me. #orbweaver #snail #orchardorbweaver #spiders #araneidaediadematus #areneidae

Leucauge venusta, known as the orchard spider, is a long-jawed orbweaver spider that occurs from southern Canada to Colombia, along the East coast, reaching into the central US. The web is often oriented horizontally, with the spider hanging down in the center.

#Leucauge venusta ( #orchardorbweaver) at #IllinoisBeachStatePark
.
I have a favourite spider! I recently discovered a female orchard orbweaver outside of our home, and was captivated by her exquisite colours.
.
When I went hiking at IBSP, I happened upon a second one, to my absolute delight!
.
The abdomen reminds me of blown glass, and I love the way the dappled sunlight illuminates those delicate green legs just so. The specific epithet venusta is apt for such a lovely creature.

This lovely #orchardorbweaver has moved in just outside the porch. Only about an inch across the legs.

Oh the tangled webs we weave.... this photo is not upside down. The #orchardorbweaver #spider creates horizontal webs so it hangs upside down, belly to the sky all the time. Do you know spiders manufacture different types of silk for different parts of their webs according to the function of the section they are working on? So cool to catch one working on its #spiderweb.

The Orchard Orbweaver Spider ranges as far north as Canada and as far south as Brazil. However, the species pictured above (Leucauge argyrobapta) is the only one found in Florida.

Continued study on this species is required, with some scientists saying that there may be as many as three additional "cryptic" species (species of animals that look the same but are genetically different and can't interbreed), which would bring the total number of species to five.

Orchard Orbweaver, now this is a cool looking #arachnid. Spiders scare me and this one still makes me jumpy but it’s really pretty (for a spider) gonna need a better lens for this one. .

From a distance I kept seeing what looked like a little flashlight on a solid green spider. Up close, this Orchard Orb Weaver was so intricately patterned. It’s abdomen was so brightly reflective. Do you think the purpose of that is to lure in little flies?

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. 💚🐞💚
