These appeared on my front porch steps in June — one of those “ack!” moments when you drop what you’re doing and dash back inside to grab the camera that is actually loaded and then futz around with the stupid lens you need, and your neighbors think you’re nuts because you just yelled “ack!” and started taking pictures of your front porch steps.
I’m actually a little annoyed with myself about these: I had seen the webby ball of a nest an hour or two earlier and thought I should get some pictures of that, and then forgot all about it; a little while later, there they were.
Wish I’d gotten that webby nest-ball, it was pretty interesting to look at.
