Deadly Beauty


The other day I ran into a Black Widow Spider redoing her web after it had been destroyed by a barrage of water from a hose- being the slight arachnaphobe, my first thought was to kill it, but then I started to watch how she moved and how truly beautiful the spider was, and how intricate her web and movements were. I like this picture because it looks like she's suspended in the air. It was truly fascinating to watch, and I was actually sad when it came time to end the show...

Spiders are pretty neat creatures. I posted one a while back on my website.

yes they are realy fascinating creatures! I was actually about four feet away from it, until I had to kill it, anyway...

wow - the story started off pretty good - like a nature channel kinda scrip with the love natures creature theme then all of a sudden, the stephen king scrip somehow got mixed in there and the show had to end - this was an entertaining and scary post - I would not want to have to kill this thing - it looks huge!
