Yesterday Vince walked outside and called me to come see what he found. Around here, it could be anything from a dog someone’s dropped off, to a snake, to a possum, to a big buck standing in the driveway. You never know what you’ll see around here.
It was a spider building a web right off the edge of our porch. It was funny because it looked like she was just suspended in air. I’m going to call it a she because I read that the female builds the webs.
She was very busy moving back in forth. She had a plan and wasn’t bothered by us standing there nose to nose with him watching, talking and taking pictures.
There was a little glob in the middle and she was going back and forth . . getting more “material” and spinning the web with her legs. It was interesting to watch, though we never could actually see the web developing.
She’s still out there this morning, still working but I don’t see much progress. I know I should stop her and send her somewhere else to build her web . . away from my porch but it’s interesting to watch.
