We found this little critter and many more like him on our nature walk last weekend. We tried to throw little twigs and things into his web to trick him into thinking it was a bug. The hope was to see him scurry on over to the "bug." Turns out, spiders are smart, he didn't fall for it. Our second thought was that the spider is actually dead... Spidey probably thinks we were the dumb ones and wishes we were dead for messing with his web. That's probably more like it.
Twas' a fun time for all! I also feel like this is a fitting image for October... though I'll warn you ahead of time, I hate Halloween. Least favorite day of the entire year. I'll take the candy and pumpkins, but leave all the rest.
