Jerry the Spider
Meet Jerry, the spider. Not sure what kind he is, but he is big!!! I don't like spiders, but for some reason I can't kill this one. He has made a web outside my french door to the patio. He has attached his web to the side of the house and the top of the patio roof, right next to the patio porch light. This is one smart spider! I have to turn the light on at night when I let Snowball (the dog) out. Then the show begins!!! Bugs fly around the light, and inevitably, Jerry gets fed. I have seen the nature shows where they show what insects do, but it is so fascinating in real life! See that little BLOB between his front legs? That was some little green bug that flew into the web. Jerry "swooped" down for the kill and then spun the bug into a cocoon! So cool! I can watch from inside the house, pray that he doesn't find his way in, or jump on my head if I go outside!
