you don't have to say I love you

What a morning we had, so full of Monday! We were so frazzled by the negativity we had created in our safe space we drove to the city for a treat. While we were there we rescued a Praying Mantis and in the process discovered this beauty. Freddy ran back to the car, "Maddie, Maddie get your phone we have another picture for you to take!" After much research I am certain it is from the genus Argiope, but I have not a clue its species as there are over 50 species of Argiope. Many of which look so similar it felt like a puzzle "Can you find the differences?" Nature days like these remind me of my grandmum's teacher who took them outside during class to "listen to the grass grow".


I didn't edit the shot too much because it was difficult to interrupt the natural colors happening. My Mum thought the clarity of the web was my hair sticking to my phone. I know, I know I use my phone so much lately, but it does have a great camera.
