I’m introducing you to Charlotte. Loved the book, watched the movie, so it was a no-brainer giving her the famous name once a I saw she wasn’t just a one-night-stand from a few posts ago. Yep, the little yellow-bellied, red-legged spider has become a fixture on our gutter. A leaf blows in her web, and she builds it right back. I’ve watched her do this a few times over the past 2-3 days.
THE VIDEO: If you love music by COLDPLAY and you’ve not grown tired of listening to their song, “CLOCKS”, sit back, take a chance, listen once more and WATCH! The audio/video timing of the marbled orbweaver spider spinning her web to this tune couldn’t have been a better match! (I thought she had an iPod nano plugged in somewhere, but I learned spiders don’t have ears; they feel vibrations with the hair on their legs).
Brought to you from our backyard, enjoy watching Charlotte finish her web!
