itsy bitsy spider

...down came the rain and washed the spider out...

.

Lots of rain overnight. The sun eventually broke through, but between the extremes, I found an unhappy arachnid surveying the damage to its house.

.

Sorry, Little Buddy. I wish I could help.

I wonder if he had flood insurance? This is a great macro.

Sweet pic. But I don't like spiders. Except Spider-man, I like him.

AWE, poor Itsy Bitsy!

Looks like the basement flooded. Hope the same didn't happen to you living on a filled in wetland and all.

What a great shot of your itsy-bitsy. He'll be spinning up a storm won't he?

It was a little uncomfortable Imac, because I had to lean into a wet bush to be close enough for the shot. What's worse, is that I had to hold still while mosquitoes hovered around there.

George, I wonder if he had to go hungry that day. Poor thing.

No?? Awww, but Sandman, spiders like youuu. Mwaaa-ha-ha-haaaa...

That's how I feel, EG. All that work, and Itsy's cover is blown. I wonder if the stickiness was compromised after the drops evaporated.

Mr. Dave: Si.


We were okay Gaelyn. I have coworkers who lost stuff from their homes flooding. That's a bummer.

Yes, I suppose he got a lot accomplished after I left, Denise. You can tell by the determined look in his eyes.

I agree Joan. I didn't pick it up, but enjoyed studying the interesting colors and patterns.

I wonder what spiders do when the web gets completely saturated like that. Do they clean it up and repair the broken strands, or just put it down to experience and go off to another location and build a new web? Is your spider still there?
