(and sometimes the beast!)




What a clever spider to weave a star into her web.  Perhaps this tiny arachnid, which is just over .5 cm from the tip of her front legs to the tip of the back legs, is a celebrity spider?  Interestingly, this morning there is no star in the web. Another of life's mysteries for me to ponder.
[edit 25/1/12: Well, Pam pondered it and she noticed that in the first photo there are only radiating silks but in the next photo there are threads crossing those, no doubt dragged out from the central star design. They're both jolly clever.]
