Spider, Man!

Spider 3

Last weekend we took some family members out to see the bees in the country (near the New Berlin exit). We had a blast and the kids such a great job - they were so brave and really were not nervous after a little bit. Everyone got to sample a bit of honey and our nephew announced, "That's so sweet!" Very nice and cute.

Mark spotted two amazing spiders, each on one end of the beeyard. They are HUGE!!! I'm not brave about all animals but spiders don't bother me too much so I was okay getting close to them to get some shots. They look very similar and were pretty mesmerizing. Didn't see any bee bodies in the webs so that's a good thing. :)

We saw a big one tonight with a baby at Billy's dad's house. It was cool & creepy.

Those are orb weavers. They build the most beautiful webs. We feed them grasshoppers at my house. My five-year-old son thinks that's SO COOL.
