We have a very large spider living on our front porch.
Every night it will spin an impressive web the size of a family-sized pizza next to the porch light. And every night, it is spectacular and perfect in every way – shape, symmetry, detail. However… there always is one small problem with it.
The spider plants one of its web’s anchor points onto our car’s side mirror. So every morning as my husband drives to work, the web breaks and the spider has to do it all over again the next evening.
It also means that on the weekends – when my husband doesn’t go to work – we have the pleasure of checking out the work of a true master craftsman.
This morning, even though it was a bit damaged from last night’s feast, the web was particularly pretty after the rain.
