Feng Shui 101 for Arachnids

23 09 2012

Michael Powell and I watched this little spider building a web at Huntley Meadows Park recently and were curious about what it was doing with this bit of fluffy seed (which I think is eastern cottonwood seed). We watched for several minutes as the little spider tugged on it long enough to be able to free it from the web, then it continued with the task at hand—building a perfect web sans the clutter! Imagine that—a spider with a knack for feng shui.

I think the spider might be a Barn spider like the one in book Charlotte’s Web, but I’m not certain.

Cindy, this is something that I would do. . .watch a spider knitting her web. . .I can’t think of ANYTHING as magical. My sons and I (MANY years ago) used to feed the BEAUTIFUL garden spiders that made their distinct webs on our front porch. . .spiders are one of my totems my friend. . .thank you for this 🙂 =^.^=
