I'm Going Buggy!

Spider on flower

There are a lot more bugs than birds! Not all of them are as easy to find, see and photograph, however. I am finding it quite challenging to get photos and even more of a challenge to identify what I get. This spider is some kind of Orb Weaver. Which one of the over 3500 kinds, I'll probably never know. But I got the photo, boy!
   The flower is Queen Anne's Lace. Plants are a little easier than bugs but still much harder to identify than birds.
