Itsy Witsy Spider

I couldn't resist taking this photo as I went to feed the horses early this morning. Everywhere was covered in spiders webs glistening with dew and they looked beautiful. This one was really interesting as the spider had built a sort of platform which she was hiding underneath and then above was just an amazing tangle of gossamer. If you click on the photo to enlarge it you can just see the spider hiding underneath the platform on the left.

Now some cats like to chase and eat spiders but not my 2 boys. Oh no, they totally ignore them as they scuttle across the floor. I showed Tinker the photo and he wasn't impressed (possibly because I've chopped his tail off in this photo!).
