Show Notes

It's time for another podcast about the amazing diversity of wildlife found here in the southeastern U.S.  This episode features the much maligned but absolutely amazing argiope spider.  This incredible spider may cause some of you a little or a lot of anxiety, but one thing is for sure, this time of year they are  easy to notice and identify due to their large size and impressively beautiful orb web!  Hopefully,  y'all will listen and learn about this wonderful and beneficial spider, and perhaps come away with a different perspective and (dare I say it?) maybe even an appreciation...
