A Tangled Web We Weave

For the past few weeks we have had some cute, cuddly guests living on my patio; 2 orb weaver spiders. Every night around sunset they go to work spinning their intricate webs. It's like watching a miniature Cirque du Solei as they dangle from their silk strands, climbing up and down so effortlessly. I think it was no surprise they set up shop where they did. They are to both sides of a rain barrel I had set up. It had become a breeding ground for mosquitoes. To them it must have been like building a house in a food court. Unfortunately for them I just recently added a dollop of cooking oil to the barrel which has done in most of the larvae. I hope my arachnid friends stick around. They're fun to watch although I occasionally forget they're there and walk into the webs. Then it's freak out time. *lol*
