Yesterday, while selecting an old post to be recycled as a bird feeder pole, my husband called me to see the spider that he found crawling on it. Can you see its eyes? I wonder if it was in search of a place to lay eggs for it looks very full and round. I am not sure of its name but while doing an image google search I found some that looked similar to this one that were labeled as European Garden Spiders? I am not sure if this is one of not?
