So Misunderstood

“The spider's web: She finds an innocuous corner in which to spin her web. The longer the web takes, the more fabulous its construction. She has no need to chase. She sits quietly, her patience a consummate force; she waits for her prey to come to her on their own, and then she ensnares them, injects them with venom, rendering them unable to escape. Spiders – so needed and yet so misunderstood.”
― Donna Lynn Hope
Makes me feel guilty that I'm not a fan! As I read, I think of a cat, watching from the bushes...and I like cats...

Such subtle differences!

@Weezilou I can see that! I'm not afraid of spiders - I think they are fascinating creatures - the way they can spin those fragile-looking webs yet they are so tensile and and strong! Glad I captured this one tonight on my porch . . . Thanks for the comments and faves!

I once read in a Natural History Museum that at any given time, we're likely to be no more than 3' from a spider. I'd likely agree with that! And like you, I'm in awe of their capability to build such amazing webs. To redeem myself, I have to add that when we returned to California for a month, we had many spider webs. One, near my computer table was so dense and large, I could see the spider duck back into it when he'd see me. Ken was ready to spay it, but I wouldn't let him. He wiped away the web several times, and though a very big one, he'd rebuilt it each day. He wasn't bothering me and I found it fascinating!
