Wordless Wednesday! Euuwww!

Spider Webs

The spider weaves a sticky web
To capture bugs to eat.
What keeps the spider's sticky web
From sticking to her feet?

Spider webs are very tricky
Because not all the strands are sticky.
Unlike the passing hapless fly,
The spider knows which strands are dry.

But if she accidentally stands
Upon one of the sticky strands,
She still would not get stuck, you see--
Her oily body slides off free.

Great this in the UK? The spiders there were unbelievable! And they seemed to suddenly appear out of nowhere.

I sent you an email about the dog.
Have a great day!

Great picture and great post. I received a picture recently from an Iraq soldier of a camel spider. I told him something that big should have a different name than "spider." It looked to be bigger than a lobster and yellow in color. I suppose the color helps it blend into the sand.

OK, spiders are not one of my favorite things because I am absolutely allergic to them. Eeeks! I love how elegant they look but at a distance.

Love the spider poem and the pictures are great. It must be very hard to get such clear pictures of a spider web. At least it would be for me.
