In the mornings I usually wake to find that the spiders have built numerous temporary additions to our home:
(imagine this between every pair of posts along a 40-foot deck)
I don’t mind spiders, in fact I kinda like them. They are beneficial, they are artistic, and for the most part they don’t really want anything to do with us, despite what your phobia might be telling you.
In any case, I find their nightly bouts of flash construction reassuring; by morning the spiders themselves are always gone.
These were all taken with a 70-150mm zoom. Always at sunup, ‘though in the best shots the sun is hidden by fog, light clouds, or a lot of trees; I’m facing into it. Very slow shutter speed, very little breathing, and very sore haunches from extended crouching. The posts and rails are cropped out of the final images.
They look molecular or something.
