Along came a spider

Remember this picture?
I had come to consider this spider our garden pet. Used to walk by every day and admire how big it had become, and I looked forward to seeing how big it could get.
Yesterday I watched it being brutally murdered. By two birds. I saw it make a leap to safety and get snatched up just before the haven was reached.
I was sad.
Silly, isn't it?

This is sad..

Most people are frightened by spiders, but not I. I appreciate what spiders do :-) One example: rid of some mosquitoes for us.

I am so far behind on reading blog entries.. Looks like I have some reading to catch up on here. Which is great!
