Just kidding... I love spiders.
It is that time of year when we start to see Jewel spiders here and there are now at least a dozen of them living around my garage with the queen of them all taking up residence just above the door.
Her body is nearly as big around as my thumb and she has built an impressive web that is at least 18 inches across and when I checked some poor little grasshopper seems to have blundered into her kitchen.
She has started to stir and I don't think the grasshopper has much longer to live.
The girls are fascinated with them and don't have a lot of fear since they know the spiders are beneficial and do spin the most beautiful webs.
The Alberta Jewel Spider... so pretty.
All the rest are just little fellas but one did snag a fly that had to be 5 times it's size was was chowing down when I was looking around.
Gotta take some pics...
