FROM THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF WEB

“Late Great” because this web was in a very precarious position…as is normal for spiders, apparently…as this splendid construction was demolished quickly when I ran right into it and ended up wearing the web like a hair-net…or veil…I forgot it was there.   (Please see yesterday’s post for more web photos if you are so inclined.)

The deck is eight-feet wide.

By the way— my spider web photos are more about photography than spiders or webs.    I have tried repeatedly to capture various topics, and consider it a learning experience.

OH!    The spider is not really as big as she appears, she has a very large bug in her grip, we call it a stink-bug, triangular in shape.

 

Spider Days…. warning to those who don’t love spiders…

This spider is not happy with me because I ran pell-mell into her web this morning, unintentionally… and yesterday rescued a little flying thing from the web.    Have ya ever seen a spider stomp her little feet?

Fortunately the spider posing for these photos is not anywhere near as she appears, she is in fact holding onto a big “stink bug” as we call them.

Photographing the Invisible–Year of the Spider, Part Two

This is how the web looked during the end of the construction phase.

Obviously she wants to ward off visitors until she is ready.

The Year of the Spider

[These photos are of spiders at work in my tree garden.   As far as I know, the spiders in the first and third photo are NOT the same.     For all my spider enthusiast Readers out there–I have more spiders and webs to show you in another post.      All photos and other content in my blog, Sometimes are original to me, Gradmama2011 …and remain my property under copyright laws.]
