    The Prettiest Death Traps Ever

    I love spiderwebs. They're deadly, yet delicate. They're just lovely... Until they are on your face, spider included. Best looked at from a safe distance. Cm

    The intricate beauty of spider webs is especially interesting in that they're a tool for killing.  All that superstrength silk is a net, cast in the sky, strung up to snare the stupid and half-blind.  To trap and enmesh before putrefying and draining vital juices.  And yet...

    They Are So Beautiful

    I love how intricate they are. I love how the sun shines on them and shows the beautiful craftsmanship.

    Hate the Spiders, Love the Homes!

    I don't HATE spiders, but I do find them creepy.  I don't run screaming from them, but I don't take to kindly to those that are in my space.  I talk to them, and tell them I don't come into their house so they shouldn't come into mine... they're not very good listeners...

    In the Mornings

    To go outside and see the dew on the spider webs is wonderful. They are so beautiful!

    Recycled Materials

    I was astonished when I recently discovered that spiders eat their webs and re spin them every day. Talk about Eco friendly, hahaha! I also learned that the webbing is thousands of times stronger than I ever imagined. Spider webs are very cool and intriguing, scientists have...

    I remember once going to a park in Arizona where the ground was pocketed with holes...in the early morning, the sun would hit the dew, to reveal a web across each one.  Creepy and beautiful at the same time.

    Feel The Noise

    As faerie was walking Brill earlier, I noticed a very fast crawler in the middle of the street. It was damn fast considering our walking pace. I could barely count those eight legs as it skirts its way alongside of us. Pretty much in a hurry. Perhaps it is off to make tea or...

    Spider Webs Are Natures Wonder

    They are strong and beautiful, especially in the fall out here in the woods when the Wolf spiders and Barn spiders build their nests in the shrubs around the porch. In the morning when I come in from work and the dew is caught in the web, well, it's definitely a sight to behold...

    Until It Smacks You In The Face.

    Yes they are something to see especially the big ones . When I used to go motocross cycling if you didn't watch out you would run right into one. That is a ugly feeling having one smack into you face. First thought is where's the Spider??

    But Terrified of Spiders

    One of the reasons I love spider webs so much is that it fascinates me that something so deadly, can create something so beautiful, from the very body that could pump venom into my body and kill me.  I am fascinated with the webs and love to go into old houses or barns to...
