Hi Mike,
I am sure my spider would love your beautiful black and yellow iris (I love it, too).
Hi Bill,
thank you for the links. It is interesting to know that this spider is very common in the Mediterranean but the last decennia she is moving up North. I am 39 years old and I can not remember seeing this spider in the 70s, 80s or 90s. The first time I saw this spider was in my mothers garden (border zone 6/zone 7) about five years ago. In my garden (zone 6) it first appeared about two years ago. But in my opinion it is a beautiful newcomer and it is welcome in my garden. It makes me sad to read that the female dies in the winter. But I hope there will be many baby spiders next spring.
