We all need water During a lengthy period of very high temperatures, I will give my garden companions a fine spray of water and it&#039;s always a joy to see them drink...in particular the spiders such as this orb, moving along her strands of silk, taking each tiny droplet in to her mouth. <br />

The Australian garden orb weaver spider is a very common species of spider with many variants in size, shape, and colour across the coastal regions of the eastern states of Australia. They have very large abdomens when well-fed and exhibit a tremendous colour-range from off-white through tan, brown to almost black.
