Our resilient balcony resident
This is our resident spider. Mark doesn't like her very much, but I won't let him kill her. It isn't like she is inside the apartment, she is in her natural habitat. Plus, this time of year there gets to be plenty of bugs around because of the pond. She is preventing them from getting to us. There was a really impressive web earlier this week, but the storm Thursday night did it in. This web has been constructed in the last three days.
Anyway, I tried to take pictures before but the spiderweb never shows up in the daylight. I went outside and could see the web perfectly in the light of the almost-full moon (creepy huh?) and thought maybe this time, with the flash, it would work. Obviously, it did (although you can't really see the moon.)
