Sorry the Thursday post is so late.
I had to be somewhere far away, early this morning.
A few mornings ago, the walk down to the pond was graced by this work in progress.
When I walked closer, I could see the jewelbox spider tessellating tricky trap threads.
These are very abundant this spring. Last year it was giant Golden Orbweavers everywhere you looked, now it's these tiny, ornate Jewelbox spiders that drape themselves across game trails around PFHQ.
It doesn't really matter what type of spider it is, I still do the heebie jeebie, slappy, wiggle dance when I walk into webs unexpectedly.
It's only a rumor that I scream like a little girl and repeat, "IS IT ON ME, IS IT ON ME? while slapping every square inch of my body.
