Little Blueberry Warrior

Today while weeding the blueberry bushes, Tom and I came across a small spiked-abdomen spider called a Starbellied Orbweaver!

Acanthapeira stellata┬áis a small spider that prefers to live its life in tall grasses or in our case: Bermuda grass. Don’t worry! This spider is not harmful and actually beneficial to us in the field, keeping insects away from our blueberries and other crops.

Way to go, little blueberry warrior!
