Every night, when darkness falls, our resident spiders start their nightly work around our patio and yard. Last week when we were out watching the meteor shower, we found a number of these guests busy at work. Their webs are so amazing to look at, and this particular spider treated us to a demonstration of what it does to the helpless creatures that manage to get stuck in the web. We watched the spider wrapping up it’s dinner – you can see it in the picture to the left of the spider.
I really don’t care for spiders at all, especially when they build webs and sit in the middle of them right in my walking path, but I do enjoy looking at their beautiful webs and watching them spin them – from a distance of course!
