Spider Webs

Today in the space of five minutes walking around the ranch I saw three different spiderwebs — all made by the same species of large brown spider. These spiders are about an inch long, quite fat and horrible up close. The stuff of nightmares. But they make pretty webs and catch flies, flying termites, whatever.

This one is right next to the road. Trying to catch a log truck? Or to catch one of our dogs that chases the log trucks?

This one was up in a tree, which seems the wisest of the three.

And this one is on the front grille of the ranch truck — very ambitious, if she can hang on while we’re going down the road she should catch quite a few bugs.
