Orange Orb Weaver

Carmi's Thematic Photographic 357 is Celebration. Here's a Christmas Cactus my sister gave me.

For TexWiscGirl's Good Fences #89, I have this morning glory fence from Columbus just over a month ago:

I'm also contributing to Michelle's Nature Notes (#340). I did not get a great macro of this Marbled Orb Weaver, but I'm putting it up anyways. I've seen them in vanilla and yellow, but this is the orangest one ever! (My sister, for some reason, did not find this spider nearly as spectacular as I did.)

And here are some of the suet feeder fans:

Cute birds and your Christmas Cactus is lovely. The morning glories are pretty too. That spider is a little creepy, neat color though. Have a happy day!

Beautiful Christmas Cactus on the fence rail and the vine growing along the fence is so pretty. Not a fan of the spider but he is interesting in the markings.
Love the bird shots too.

& the birds at the geese are sweet!

That is one very cute cactus from your sister. I missed Carmi's call too, so I'll have to pop on over too! Great captures again, you always share the fun stuff, thanks.

Love seeing those Morning Glories!

My indoor cactus has not flowered yet and does not look as if it will in time for Christmas. Great bird feeders.

Suas fotos são lindas.
O que mais me chamou atenção foi a segunda foto que lembra uma planta de flores azuis que são minhas favoritas e nem sei o nome delas... postei algumas no meu blog.

Ótimo fim de semana com tudo de bom!
Beijinhos.
