A Discovery

I found a beautiful spiderweb across the deck steps today. Fortunately, I've been going in and out of the back door because of the patio, so I didn't accidentally destroy it.

Here is the odd looking spider that was hunkered down in the middle of it. It was really hard to get the camera to focus on it.

I'm not sure whether I should disturb the web or not. I don't need to go through there right now, so I think I'll leave it for a while. I'm sure that it'll be tough enough to keep that web up with wind and rain. If it turns out that it needs to be taken down, I'll do it (with regret, like moving the worms), but until then, I'll leave it up.

We have one of these babies in each of our windows and sometimes two, one at each corner! They must be fall spiders. Even though the detail photo is fuzzy, the spider is unmistakable. Specially that sullen huntch because something large is too close.
