Image of the Day

Hanging on by a Thread
It is amazing to me how these guys can attach themselves and then move quickly up and down these little threads of web.

The photo makes it look huge. But how big is it really?

Jeff Meyers said...

Ah, it was about the size of my riding lawnmower. Maybe a little smaller.

Bobber said...

Ah yes, I didn't recognize it at first. It's the common Missouri lawn spider. Many people like to keep these as pets actually. They are said to be quite trainable. But also they like to eat small dogs.

Nice photo by the way. ;)

Nice bokeh (I won't say "lovely" having read your liturgical advice #3).
