Have you ever seen something so well-hung?

August 26th, 2008

Taking out the trash this evening I almost walked into a very well-hung spider web. Silk was flying everywhere as these two spiders were spinning furiously together. The little one was doing all the work, ferrying new silk lines back and forth and handing it off to the bigger one to attach to the main web. Occasionally the big one would belch and scratch it’s belly as it waited for the little one to return. It actually was a pretty cool display of nature to watch… too bad I must kill them now as I am the dominant, alpha, pinnacle species and must exercise my dominance. Oops, just checked and I’m out of Raid… will have to demonstrate my raw, natural fury after a run to Sears.

Sadly, almost walking into this web with it’s rather intimidating occupant will only reinforce my normal reaction to walking into webs, which is to hop in circles while spastically slapping myself.

    The spider looks huge!! Where was our frame of reference? A quarter? A basketball? You sure that isn’t a tan recluse widow tarantula imported from the southern Andes with one of your shipments of wood?

    Those are some really detailed photos? What was the camera? Did you buy it so that you could capture the detailed veins and grains on your wood?

    When I was a kid, we used to find carpenter ants and throw them into big webs like that. Then, watch the spider do its thing. I’m much more civilized now.
