Our Creepy Night-time Guest


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!
