On the Hunt

Has our readers been seeing spiders lately? BIG spiders, that is?

Hickory and I have nearly run through some pretty big webs up in the branches, only to skid to a stop when we saw this:

Then the other day, se spotted a large blob on a deck screen. A closer inspection revealed one of those same stripey-legged spiders had a meal. Hickory got too close, and the spider jumped on what we think was a web-wrapped moth and looked ready to defend it to the death.

Or at least give out a few spider bites in defense. We backed off.

We don’t eat moths anyway—too fuzzy.
