Spiders in our garden

I noticed at least 6 spiders and webs in our garden today and decided to play with the spiders like I did when I was young; finding other insects and inserting them into webs :) I also put two spiders of the same species in one web. I noticed some of you never play with spiders so I filmed it. The first spider is creating a new web.

Cool how the spider kicks the other out. Really fast, would have like to see that in high FPS :)
Nice quality video also.

Did you also happen to shoot some macro photos of the spiders?

nice pictures and video. incredible nice patterns they got.

Something different the spiders seems to get bigger last years. Is it that just me or you guys got the same feeling? Maybe it got something to do with global warming.

No they just look like ordinary cross spiders to me. There are a lot of them though.
The common house spider is a lot scarier, I used to see these in my old house, thankfully never in my new house though.
