Why not join me for a Seattle spiderweb walk this foggy morning? Wear your Spiderman and Spiderwoman costumes if you want.
What a bounty of beautifully spun spider webs I came across on my stroll through the neighborhood.
One, two . . . I was soon joined by a Dad and daughter who counted at least fourteen webs in one bush alone.
Dad used the opportunity as a teachable moment for his daughter. Placing his fingertip at the bottom of the web, he demonstrated what happens when a spider feels an object yanking its web.
Let me tell you – it took all of a nanosecond for that spider to move towards its prey. Eeeeeek! Don’t worry. Neighborhood Dad took his finger away just in time, leaving the spider somewhat confused, I’m sure.
Oh, what a tangled web we weave . . .
What did you see on your morning walk today, wanderboomers?
