I’m not kidding here. If spiders are on your squick list, stop reading now.
Here’s a small picture of Emeraldas, as protection against getting too much of the post on screen. (She’s warming up her eye lasers to save you from the evil arachnid.)
So, yes. Continuing last week’s recognition of new visitors; though in this case, she’s not hanging out at any of the bowls. She’s strung her web in front of the house. Across the path to the front door, in fact. We suspect she wouldn’t mind a bit if she snagged a UPS or Amazon driver.
Not a great shot, is it? Night photography in gusting winds is tough.
Of course, so is Ms. Arachnid’s web. It’s held up remarkably well against those winds and a week’s worth of foot traffic.
Hang on, let me get a shot from a different angle.
She’s rather cute, in a “way too many legs” kind of way, don’t you think?
