Spiderweb Pic

We saw this rather impressive spiderweb strung across part of our back yard on Saturday morning.

The industrious arachnid had run one long line from a bush in the neighbor's yard to the one of the cherry trees, then run from the cherry tree across our patio and back yard to the maple tree.  She then created a large web that ran almost to the ground.  So she basically ran a 20 to 25 foot support line between three trees, and then made a pretty good web in one night.

Did you recently get a pig?

Funny thing is, Irish Woman asked if her name was Charlotte when I got her to come out and take a look at it.

Reminds me of the far side cartoon with the spiderweb at the end of a kiddie slide: "When we pull this off, we'll eat like kings!"

We kept boo out of the backyard for the morning to give Ms. Spider a chance to catch some breakfast and for the web to get blown away by the breeze. Although I would have definitely photographically documented his reaction to finding it, either by sight or by finding himself hanging half a foot off the ground.
