This has to be the weirdest spider that I have ever seen. She has built a nest in the petal of my rose bush. Her green colouring meant that I nearly touched her when I went to wipe what I thought was a catapillers silk off the leaf. It gave me one heck of a shock I can tell you.
I called out to my aunt, who is an ex-Pest Inspector, to find out if she recognised it. All she could tell me was that it was a garden spider of some variety. It's like nothing we've ever had here. She is a pretty apple green colour with black dots on her thorax similar to a ladybeetle. On her butt on either side of her spinners are 2 black dots that look like eyes. Do you recognise what kind of spider she is? If so I'd love to find out.
