I'm in my yard walking to the shed to get the lawnmower. Lo and behold and walk smack into this thing!
Ugh! After I brush myself off and experience a spine-tingling chill I came face to face with the motherlode!
Double Ugh! The thing looked like it had fangs!
I'm still shivering. Yeeks.
But after being thoroughly grossed out, I couldn't help but look closely at that web. The sun was just beating down on it so I could see each circle. Imagine being caught in that thing... how hard to get out... being stuck in that web... with the queen waiting to suck your blood!
Funny how life can imitate the simplest of creatures - weaving webs so big, we can't get out.
And the motherlode is just waiting to suck the life right out of us.
Where's Ripley when you need her????
