Spiders, Prey, Webs

Here are a number of spiders in their webs;

a number savouring the thought of their prey;

a young one contemplating more than he can chew.

Finally Jackie has shown that spiders can be kept indoors by frost.


  1. This post is right up my alley! I photographed a large rain spider peeping out from behind a picture on the wall this morning while I was drinking tea indoors – I thought it might be a skin and blew on it … it moved two of its legs – and so did I!

  2. Good captures from you both, but I don’t like spiders. I spent most of my life ignoring them and not bothered by them. These days I’m almost hysterical with fear and I’ve no idea why!

  3. Wowza! Sensational photos, Jackie and Derrick…of the spiders and their artistic webs! Love the frosty webs…Mother Nature adding to the art! 🙂 Ha on the young one! “Eyes bigger than his tummy”?! 🙂
    Let’s all take a moment and be grateful spiders don’t have wings!
    (((HUGS))) ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
    A man is eating at a restaurant when he notices there’s a spider in his soup. He calls over the waiter and complains.
    “I’m deeply sorry, sir,” the waiter replies. “But the fly asked to take the day off!”

  4. You have a nice variety of spiders here, and their webs are beautiful, especially the frosty ones. I’m always surprised at how many spider webs survive storms.

  5. I enjoyed those spider portraits, Derrick. I like the little pale crab spider contemplating the bee. The bee does look a bit big!

    Jackie’s frosty webs are beautiful.
