GRRRRRR!So out of frustration 30 to 40 shots later; I promptly went back inside the house to tend to 'MILDRED' our Thanksgiving center piece. Mildred gave me some peace of mind because as you can see; she was quiet the lovely little hen and we thanked her for providing for our family meal.
I just don't know about ya'll but, when I get something stuck in my head to accomplish. I just can not rest until I figure it out ---- back outside I went. This time I met with some success as you can see. Let me introduce you to the Spinybacked Orb Weaver or as Saenz called her, The Thorn Spider.
The little lovelies (less than a 1/4 inch in size) come in different colors like red, orange and this yellow; nature's way of saying, "I Don't Taste Good." Each night the orbweaver builds a new web which are large and can be found between two tree limbs, or buildings, or just plain in your face. The female usually hangs upside down in the middle of her web and awaits the familiar web vibrations of dinner being served.
Hope all of you are having a lovely weekend with your families. Tonight we will be decorating our first live Christmas tree in 14 years. I am super stoked to be restarting this lovely tradition for our boys and will take pictures of our fun maybe tomorrow. I will leave you with a lovely sunset photo from yesterday.
Please those of you in this winter storm's path please stay safe, warm, and dry because it is coming your way in a few days. We are supposed to have a hard freeze tonight so, the rest of our day will be spent preparing our garden, animals, and water pipes.
