Mountain biking and hiking our homestead trail often leads to collisions (mostly in the face!) with spider webs…and that gave thought to this write smile

For those not familiar with North America’s black widow spider she has a red hour glass on her belly and has the rather unfortunate habit of consuming her mates who are rather drab in appearance smile And she is quite venomous (in the literal sense).

Thanks to Janice for agreeing to let Bud photograph her trying out a “come hither” expression and then doctoring up the photo! She laughed so much that I didn’t think we had a chance to get the shot.

And big thanks to Peter for the guitars!

Your time to both listen and comment is always appreciated.
