Katie Spider Has Longer Legs

As an update on the antics of Katie Spider. Over the last few days of sunshine and warmth, she has done little else other than eat. She even has a spare food morsel in her web. But her legs are growing longer and her stomach clearly so. She looks like a spider wearing leggings. But the clever spider has also been learning to write. If you look at the top of the web above Katie she has typed a little letter K into her web, but maybe a little off balance as the K is on the side instead of upright.

The Day of the Spiders

Over the last few weeks I have been watching the spiders in the garden. They build the most intricate webs, grow larger with their regular meals and they reach a point where they are massive in spider terms. I was watching these spiders today and decided that they were having a chilled out day, just out in the sun relaxing, eating what could be in spider land Salted Caramel Ice creams in the sun. But  they looked so relaxed, not being bothered much by me at all. The photographs are of two spiders and they need names. But to be awkward I am going to call them both Katie Spider . Just random names.  So tonight I am introducing you to these two spiders and we can all follow them in the days to come. I think I was quite kind to both of them, leaving them alone to think and make or mend their web. I am sure there was some film about a spider, a cute one, but the name of the film escapes me. But my two spiders are the cutest of all. Their webs remain intact, they have crept into their night time hiding places and all is quiet. They seem rather happy living in the garden. I know this is not true in a vetinary manner but they do look like they have eyes and are watching their food.

The World wide Web. Spiders and their contribution

Usually none of the family are fond of spiders but last week I kind of came to admire them. Watching them spin webs in the garden connecting plants and pots to make amazing works of art called Webs. The intricate patterns and their patience suggested that ADHD does not exist amongst the spider fraternity.  A few photographs to demonstrate their artistic triumphs. By accident I partially destroyed one of the webs, maybe even this one photographed here and I felt rather guilty.
