I drove two hours down to South Carolina and was able to see the Joro spiders for the first time. Really cool to see and they are just as cool as the native clavipes. Same beautiful web that is incredibly strong, I also noticed some native kleptoparasitic spiders in their webs which was interesting. I have two photos but I have more to edit.

Couple more clavata, and we found a dead butterfly out on our walk and so I brought it home to photograph the scales! 8D0FF85E-29E0-4EC4-A01F-367312383867.jpeg CDBE9EDD-14F2-4D21-853B-26DF81C61627.jpeg E498EA19-2562-42C8-903E-D6A17900542F.jpeg 4FBE10F4-3B8C-4292-B8E7-E0B00BA2DC0B.jpeg

Here are some joros in my room, starting with one of the black leg ones and then a regular one and a male. 46C69A7A-CAD3-438B-A741-C00E54CB35E1.jpeg F74AE1B7-0AAE-474A-A874-7B534E60560F.jpeg 1F8E25E7-0136-4429-9483-2CFB1FBEE358.jpeg 5AF79841-85E3-4EC5-A0E3-9C498D404DE1.jpeg
