Clockwise and counter
Watched in awe as this small spider did its morning's work.
Circling from the center, moving outward, it connected the radial threads already hung.
Our hard rain would have ruined yesterday's web if the spider hadn't eaten it already.
I was glad the spider had a mid-morning snack dangling like the proverbial carrot.
Managed to get back into the bushes behind the web for a counter-clockwise look. Managed to get mighty bit by mosquitoes, too.
It's raining hard again. Out by the creek a spider will have to start all over tomorrow morning.
