Late last summer, my mom saw an interesting spider in our backyard. We named it Charlotte. She lived in our backyard for a couple of months, and kept rebuilding her web whenever it fell apart.
Mom got scared of Charlotte though, because one day she saw her do a big bungee jump! Charlotte jumped down 5 feet to the ground and tried to catch a grasshopper, and then bungeed back up to her web! If you look at the photo, you will see the zigzag in her web, and this is what she used to bungee jump!
Charlotte was not poisonous though, and her variety is known as an Argiope or St. Andrews Cross Spider.
One day, Charlotte was gone, and I miss her. Charlotte was my friend. As you may know, I LOVE bugs and spiders, so I would have liked to play with her!
