I told this spider to get out of the road!

But it did not care and left its cool tracks as it walked away into the sunset. I have seen these tracks dozens of times and never saw what made these almost like a bike tire tread track. Now I found it and yes the track it leaves is as wide as a bike tire….if you look in front of her, you will see she is going back over a track she left earlier. The wind has blown most away, yet you can see she is following exactly the original track….sometimes the road has many of these trails…

Araneus diadematus – orb-weaver spider – female

I tried to get a close up and she got very nasty with me. Very camera shy and very grouchy. So since I understand, I left her alone to do her thing…

Mother Nature is so cool…
