The itsy-bitsy...

I love how double paned glass creates these shadows.


This big boy created a four foot web just outside my bay window.


It catches a lot of insects... so I let it be.


Keep the mosquito massacre rolling my little friend.

Creepy spider! I have some that build their webs on the porch. They look just like these.

Those are orb weavers; I've been seeing them all over my yard this past month. As long as they keep the webs out my path and keep the flying insects under control, they're welcome. I saw one today that had a giant bumblebee in its web, and since they showed up I haven't seen a single mudwasp. They also tend to scurry to the edge of the web into a tree or eave when they see people, so only the flying bugs need fear them.

This is SOOOOOOOOOO neat!!! I never realized double paned windows would do this! I've got these critters around too, and if they will get rid of the 'skeeters' for me, then I consider them my friends ;-)

Weird looking spider. Most spiders have long outstretched legs.

This one looks cold.
