Little Miss Muffett

A tiny spider is zipping up and down a silken thread about three inches in front of my monitor. I tried pointing the digital camera at him but I couldn't stand the flicker of the two refresh rates interacting, certainly not long enough to find the spider in the viewfinder. I wish he'd show up on a screen capture. He looked very funny in front of Wayne's full-screen dragonfly.

I had one of those the other day (spider, not dragonfly). Cute little gal and very busy. She disappeared. Probably wasn't enjoying the poast I was reading at the time.

The next day I had a fair sized moth.

I had to laugh at this.

I too have had flying and dangling critters emerge before my screen - the last time was a lovely mud dauber clambering all over Burning Silo's post.

It's a tribute to the normally outdoor denizens that visit my house temporarily because I tend to leave the doors open all day and much of the night.
