Spiders

Around here, especially in and around my apartment building, there are a lot of spiders. Not just tiny little spiders, but big spiders too. And they make quite large webs, quickly. If you get home at 10 pm and park your car in the lot, by 8 am the next morning, a spider has often made a web connecting your car to the car next to it, I’ve been told. Impressive. They also have managed to make a very large web outside of my building, connecting the second floor of my building to the electrical pole and wires a few meters away. And this web has outlasted several violent rainstorms.

This little fellow built his web on my balcony.

Look ma! No hands! A spider in mid air. Actually, he has a web, it's just hard to see.

Spiderweb 4

Same spider. This was taken at a beach by the sea. At the bottom of the shot, a couple of my co-workers.

This spider was huge! The size of a hand! He was creeping around the hotel I stayed at for a night. Yikes! I hope he isn't poisonious!
