Araneus quadratus: DeeDee

Adult four-spotted orb weaver females like DeeDee can reach over a half inch in length. This spider lives in gardens, wooded areas, or wherever there is enough vegetation to support an orb web. Adult females can actively change their color. (DeeDee’s glass knob references her ability to match her resting space.) DeeDee will be on display and for sale at the Oliver Center for the Arts July 28 – September 8, 2017 as part of a group exhibition, “Bugs, Birds and Beasts.”Read more
