This week there has been a Spider Convention going on around here. I've had some fun with them.

very cool - it is good to see them when wandering in the woods. Not too good to not see them and walk right into them, so in the woods, almost always have a walking stick.

Agree. We keep an assortment of Spider Sticks by the steps.

Glad you liked her, Matt.

I made a little video of her spinning out the web, but it is shaky so not much good. She works so quickly! And I love how they look in the morning when the dew is still on them and the early sun reflecting.

Glad you liked it. Actually they were purple when I first raised the black areas. I got them as far as blue but might can do a bit more. Those harsh shadows drive me nuts.
