<p>Well named as the Silver Argiope, since they have a dense coat of hairs that make them shimmer silvery, these spiders were common in southern Texas when I visited last November. I didn't get a dorsal shot of the female spider in my <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/zxgirl/48855589902/in/photostream/">previous photo</a>, but wanted to post another to show what she would look like.<br />
<br />
It's also possible this is <i>A. blanda</i> - apparently they're very difficult to tell apart, and both occur in this area.<br />

<p>... or was I just impregnated??&quot; I imagine it could go something like that between this pair! I bet at least half of you reading this didn't even notice the tiny male spider in this photo. Could that be his way of avoiding becoming post-coital dinner - to be too tiny to be appetizing?<br />
<br />
It's often the case that male spiders are smaller than their female counterparts, but this is the most extreme example I've personally seen.<br />
<br />
You can see a top view of another in the first comment below. I wasn't able to get around to the other side of this one.<br />
