Especially for trista: The Spider Who Ate My Apartment Complex, revisited.

We got to watch it spinning its web over my potato vine when we got home from work tonight. It's pretty cool -- the spider spirals around the framework of the web, filling in strands, guiding the filaments with one hind leg in a very practiced motion, tapping the cross strands into place at every intersection. That's the new thread it's pulling along with the upper hind leg in the photo. It was scurrying along very quickly, hence the bits of blur.
