Daily Photo: July 24, 2011


We have spiders in our basement, much like anybody else. This gal just caught herself one heck of a meal. It’s bigger than she is!


    1. Isn’t it? I marvel at the workings of nature. This creature, so perfectly designed to trap and kill. If any creature deserves respect, it is the spider.


      1. aye that it does did you know host spiders can trap their prey and have it wrapped in about 30m seconds, har bet you didnt knw that one me friend, i will rest soon and thank ye fer yer concern, i think maybe Serena will take over to get us all asleep, till the morrow then mate.


  1. Great photo!
    A little gross, but captivating.
    I went to my door the other day,
    and there lying in the sun were two skink lizards,
    entwined in a perfect infinity symbol! ∞
    Wish I’d taken a photo! 😉


    1. Gross…or beautiful?

      There are often squirrels and chipmunks and rabbits and deer outside of our house, but they’re awfully timid and run away from me. And the groundhogs – I swear, they know exactly when they’re being watched. That’s why I so rarely get photos of them.

      The spiders, though – they just don’t care. Humans are beneath them, I think.

      I would love to see your skink lizards (does that sound weird?)!
