Day 244: Weaving a Web

Day 244: Weaving a Web, originally uploaded by susanvg.

This seems to be a very busy time of year for spiders. Some days I open my front door and am confronted with a freshly woven web. The creator is not happy when I brush its masterpiece aside. This spider wisely chose a bush in which to weave its gossamer threads. I'm hoping it will catch a few of the wasps, who live in the next bush.

I appreciate spiders as they keep the insect population down. But I prefer to appreciate them from afar. They can get nasty when disturbed, though, fortunately we are not in an area with venomous spiders.

  1. I'm partial to the webs but not necessarily to the spiders. However, managing to catch one in its lair is special.
