Colorful, delicate and tiny, the orchard orbweaver spider spins its web horizontal to the ground and hangs upside down near the opening waiting for dinner. These spiders are non-aggressive and will drop to the ground and retreat if threatened. Tiny, this guy is about 1/4 of an inch in length. Most people will notice the web, but completely over look the spider due to its small size. Spiders like this are ubiquitous and important to the environment as non-toxic organic exterminators. Being small, they are often picked on by birds, reptiles and small mammals. Aside from prediation, they suffer the additional humiliation of humming birds stealing their web to build nests.
