Barbara's Friend, Edith (and...enter The Gecko)

My garden buddy, Rebecca, called me and told me that she had some news for me.  She then explained that she was sure that she found Barbara the Spider's long lost friend, Edith (see previous post).  She said, however, that Edith had to be a northern spider, due to her coloring and personality -- she appeared to be a little more "pasty" in her coloring (as us Pacific Northwest Natives tend to be due to lack of sun), whereas Barbara's coloring was more vibrant.  Edith also appeared to be a bit more reserved and not quite as social as Barbara (as many northerners are).  Of course, I had to come see.

She is quite the nice looking spider, and it appears that this little gecko felt the same way...he kept eyeing her -- wondering if he would get a nice tasty lunch.    Pretty soon, however, he scurried away, realizing that Edith was well protected by her new large friends.





These spiders (Orchard Orbweavers) have such a lovely color -- they look almost like stained glass.  And, depending upon how the light hits, their color changes dramatically...
 







Much like the little gecko, who changed from brown to green as he hurried on his way...
