On Silent Feet in Front of a Game Camera —- Tuesday, October 1, 2019

(From Pinterest)

The game camera captured a unique experience for you and I.  First here is a moth

Then a rather messy spider web

Suddenly the spider started tearing apart the web

She seemed rather disgusted with her work.

Then up she went

The next photo shows it RESTORED!!  Beautiful!

Here is the spider in the daytime

Just so you know.  I took down the camera.  The little panicky feeling I get when I see the web, not to mention the spider itself is not a thrill I want to experience every time I go out to get the camera.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. A German proverb states that spider in the house brings good luck. As a spinner of wool, it took me awhile to get used to the thought that a spider is our symbol. They spin the most beautiful webs and their webs get more perfect as they get older. I know, they are creepy, but fascinating. Living flycatchers.


  2. That was a beautiful spider web. I find their work fascinating…. as long as those webs are outside and not in a corner of my house! I wouldn’t mind watching them on a camera.


  3. I started a comment then got pulled away to something else. I’m not getting on my computer enough until the rain comes. I can see you would hate having the spider looking at you all the time. I usually take a broom or something else long and move them to a more useful area. Who knows what kind of bugs they are getting at night. We have some vile looking spiders here and I’ve been bitten by one working in the garden but we need them. I’d keep moving them off the camera and keep the camera up. Don’t like spiders but no longer afraid of them. Now a flying palmetto bug, I can get shrill over. (Big roaches in tropical areas.) Shudder, shudder. 🙂
