The day of the insect.
I didn’t know it would be. I hadn’t planned on it.
But as the sun peeked over the trees this morning, it illuminated a huge spider web stretched between two branches. Upon closer inspection, I saw that they were everywhere. And big. And beautiful.
I know this is the time of year when I tend to find spiders smooshed into the smallest spaces and corners of our warmer-than-the-chill-outside-air house, but it seems like they are proliferating like crazy. Or just enjoying a last hurrah at the end of the season.
Then there were slugs and fuzzy caterpillars lining the driveway.
So insects and arachnids abound. They are my muse today.
