orb-weaving orb-weaving


  • (adj) of spiders who weave circular webs


  • Golden orb-weaving spiders find insects delicious

    If memory serves, they tasted something like buttered pecans. Of course, it has been 45 or so years, but I can distinctly remember the flavor. I'm talking about golden orb-weaving spiders, of course. I had them from a street vendor in Northern Australia when I was there to buy horses for the Air Force. A story for another time, I suspect.
