Views: micro and macro

Arachnophobes may want to look away, but I came across this beautiful Charlotte sitting in her web on a regular, very spidery window job. She had
the great sense to move away while I washed the window, and I'm pretty sure I saw her wave as I moved off to the next set of windows.

An hour later, while parked at Lovers Point for a lunch break in the car, this suddenly hove into view from around the rocky point

Certainly startling, as it seemed very close to the water, but also somewhat silly, as the engine was going "putt putt putt putt putt," as I imagine Mr. Toad's motor car to sound. I've never seen or heard a blimp that close before; pretty entertaining.

Great photos. Beautiful Charlotte!
All our spiders have 'gone away' or tucked in for the colder season, I actually quite miss them, as I tend to make friends with most of them.... which is something most of my human friends just don't understand.
I consider them my first defense against Moths... :^)

absolutely! some of my favorites are the wolf spiders, they don't web, and have quite large faces and expressive eyes.
