Charlotte’s Web

I thought this was so amazing that I had to get a picture of it. It’s not amazing to see a spider web but what was amazing is that the spider spun it at night and it went from the tree in the middle if the front yard to the pots that sit next to the house. That is a distance of 15 feet. Wow, what an amazing creature.

Looks like a orb spider web. Spiders are the best to have in the garden. They eat many of the bad bugs. They are really amazing. It looks like a little dew on that web, Is it cooling down for you cliff?

Take care, BOB

I can't tell you how glad I am that this doesn't happen here! There are new spider webs on my porch each morning but nothing like this. I think Bob is right about it being an orb spider. I've seen those webs in books and quickly turned the page! Amazing what they can accomplish so fast but it still creeps me out.

Bob - not up on my spiders, the dog scared it off before I could take the picture so not sure what it looked like. I have to come clean. The dew was made by me with a spray bottle with water so it would show up on the picture better :-)

Lostrose - thanks for the comment, thank goodness i am not afraid of spiders because there are so many around here. The one thing I can stand is snakes!!! They creep me out. I can't watch them on TV or look at pictures!!
