Mornings With Spider

I'm tempted to name this spider something silly like Cornelia or Arnolfini, but instead I just call it Spider. I've been flinging half dead flies into the web periodically since last month, but the other morning I woke up, opened the Dutch door to the deck and instead of seeing a clear line web, I saw this: water droplets outlining everything. And you know what that means. Well, what that means here on the Wet Coast, I mean...

Autumn's officially here.

We usually get one or two of those big-bodied autumn spiders making webs and eggs around our carport at this time of year. Haven't seen any yet though.
