Only saw spiders on my walk today. Atleast I finally got to walk this week. I also saw the mist lifting off the tops of the hills like rising steam. Wait a minute. I only saw spiders? (borrowed picture again not mine)
There were spiderwebs everywhere, little ones on every blade of grass, large ones strung between trees, funnels on the ground, streamers in the air. I am always amazed by how my default interest is searching for bobcat and deer and other roughly pet or person sized things.
I wonder if this is a social reflex or visceral? Ironically, the deadliest creature on the planet is the mosquito, so I shouldn’t be searching too hard for snakes and sharks!
