Sing along: "If you're happy and you know it..."'re happy and you know it spin a WEB.

If you're happy and you know it spin a web!

If your happy and you know it.....

Then your face will surely show it...

If you're happy and you know, it spin a web!

(This spider has been webbed up on the gardenia bush and the top of my morning coffee patio chair since we got back from Switzerland. As long as he is happy, and willing to catch mosquitos, I am willing to let him have the back of the chair.)
Pretty mellow spider.
And the orange smile is just too cute!
Have a happy Sunday. And remember to smile while YOU are hanging out!

I don't think I have ever seen a 'smiling' spider - especially not one wearing the latest fashion colour 'lipstick' !!smile
That's quite the you know its name?

"I'm happy ... and I know it" but I don't know how to spin a web!!! smile

Julie: His name is Bruce.

(Just kidding. I have scoured the web looking for a scientific name, and how ucky is that, scrolling through pages and pages of really ugly spiders. You All I can say just had to ask, didn't you? All I am sure of is that he is a orb weaver, and that there are several kinds of spiders with faces, some with furrowed faces, some with even more comic expressions. Sounds like a topic for a best selling kid's picture book to me.)

sing with me . . .
itsy bitsy spider crawled up the water spout . .
down came the rain and washed the spider out .. .

. .just practicing my baby songs . .thanks for the visual reminder.
he's not poisonous is he? We don't have that one here.

Bruce may be smiling but I think I'd still keep my distance. Has he caught anything in his web yet?

Bruce rocks. He catches all kinds of yummy bugs, and has muliple webs above and behind his main web. A really network going on there. All spiders are venonous, but our Bruce stays right in the middle of his web, and if I get too up close with him he retreats. I'd have to go out of my way to get bit.
I wish he could do something about the half inch long red and black ants that keep dropping on me from the tree over the picnic table. Those buggers DO bite without justification. I may have to take up cigar smoking to ward them off, bug spray doesn't do a thing to repel them.

Your spider is probably a SHE. We always called them Garden Spiders because they are so good for the garden. If I recall correctly, only 2 spiders are dangerous to humans in Texas - the Black Widow and the Brown Recluse which is very tiny but likes to hide in shoes, garden gloves etc. K Q;-0
