There is a really big spider in a complex web attached to the hydrangea in front of my house. The attachment, a single thread, comes down from the eave over the front door, at about a 45 degree angle. I have no idea how spiders do that with any sort of accuracy. I get that they can swing in the wind, but how do they aim for a bush, land there, and begin spinning. I can’t imagine.
Taking these nature pics has really sharpened my powers of observation. At an earlier point I might have walked right by the spider and web, or absent-mindedly swatted it down. Now, I wanted to see where the web was attached, and I was moved to wonder how in the world the spider landed here.
