I about jumped out of my skin when I looked out my bedroom window and saw.....
So of course (knowing that you would truly enjoy some close-up spider shots) I grabbed the camera and ran outside.
I think their webs are quite fascinating
and they are neat to watch as they build their homes....
(from a distance, of course)
but I'm not so thrilled with the homeowner!
thank goodness for the zoom lens!
when I enlarged this shot, I could see the surprise Ms. Spider was about to leave me
This!! She decided that my bedroom window was a good place to leave her offspring!
I didn't agree.
No, that's not two egg sacs, just a reflection!
So I got hubby to go outside and knock the egg sac down to the ground. (I'm the one who freaks out at bugs of all types!)
We thought that the babies could just as easily run all over the ground instead of our window -- where the screen, by the way, has a small hole in it. Baby spiders sharing my bedroom is NOT part of the program!
And I don't know about you, but I'm creeped out just writing this and dealing with those pics!
To combat more creepiness, I am leaving you with some cute kitty pics....
I'm sure you'd rather think of cute kitties than yucky spiders!
Hey, just be glad there are no snakes!!
This is Patio, Jr who apparently thinks rainwater is better than the water in the communal water bowl...
Oops! Caught in the act!
I'll stare at you and bolt if you take one tiny step toward me....
(Thank goodness again for the zoom lens!!)
