What a tangled web we weave...

...when first we are a spider.


This rather large fellow has taken up residence in our front yard and has been spinning large webs beside our fence by the driveway that are at least two or three feet wide. I had the camera with me when we came home last night so I took a picture. Sorry to freak out any of you who dislike spiders. I'm not a big fan myself, but wanted to pay homage to this one for his hard work - we've knocked down his web leaving the house at dusk and come back a few hours later and he'll have built it completely back up again. Gotta respect his work ethic if not his taste in dining. :)

Soon as I veiwed the picture I could feel things crawling on me. lol I took pictures of some big spiders in LA. I think someone called them banana spiders but not sure.

The web makes a good texture on top of the blurred background. Good earthy colours.

Very well done ... the web and the photo!
