A Nightly Visitor

I've posted previously that I am terrified of spiders. But, I just had to take a picture of this girl (I am pretty sure it's a female) who has been spinning an orb web outside our kitchen window every night. You have to admire her diligence. Every night she spins this huge web. And then at dawn, she removes it. This must be "spider season" for these types. I have been seeing them everywhere. And, one has to be careful. A couple of nights ago, I walked into one of their webs that they were spinning across the porch. Fortunately, the spider dropped onto the ground and stalked off, and didn't drop onto me.
