    this was taken with my 35mm lens so not macro by far, but I think I got a pretty good shot...

    She is the keeper of my garden, but I'm worried of all her babies coming out and it is making me wonder do I leave her be or move her?

    Those are tomatoes in the background, I think! haha I can't remember what angle this particular pic came from, so it is either tomatoes or bricks, looks like tomatoes to me

    Basilica Orbweaver (Mecynogea lemniscata)

    They hang upside down in a dome-like web.
    The thing in the forground is the egg sac.


    Thanks, Ralph

    It's the egg sac. If you google Basilica Orbweaver you almost always see them with a similar egg sac.

    Thanks, Ralph
