Spider web as natural screen door


Above and below, my favorite spider in his/her (how do I tell?) lair, just outside my back door.


A wonderful place to set up shop, guaranteed to produce a steady diet of juicy insects.


Who needs a screen door when you've got one of these arachnid homeys?


Now to encourage others to establish residence outside the rest of my doors and windows....

I so agree! Here in mid-coastal FL (east side) we have many so-called Daddy Long Legs (you know why they're 'so-called' - not really spiders or something) happily ensconced in the corners chomping up ants and mosquitoes! Love spiders :)

Hmmm, I wonder if that could be a male argiope...the female is that kind of great big long leggedy spider with the pretty black & yellow abdomen and the huge web with what looks like zig-zag dental floss in the center.
I'm no spider expert so I wouldn't know. Avogadro's probably got it nailed.

Is this a kind of iPhone 5 karezza you're practicing here, prolonging the ecstasy? I say it's high time to complete the act and hit the on switch or command it to do your bidding or whatever has to happen.

Erm, actually not.

The photo was shot with my departing 4S.

This marks the first appearance of the iPhone 5 on BOJ!

Looks like a comb-clawed spider. They're the most common type of house spider in North America.
