The works of spiders

Spiders are amazing creatures. I know that they are ruthless predators, but their webs always make me sigh. These spider-works, beaded with dew, webbed the entire area around the water faucet on our dock this morning.

Yesterday morning, the Paul Bunyan of spiders had strung a web completely across the dock, from dock box to dock box - a mighty work. It must have taken him all night.  It too was beaded with dew when I saw it, riding my bike down the dock on the way to work.

How could I not think of this Far Side cartoon?

Sadly, it didn't work out for Mr. Bunyan. I rode my bike right thru the web.
