"Under the Glow of the September Moon"
One September a few years back, I had the thrill of watching a young Cross Orbweaver Spider grow up on my balcony. Every evening she would weave her web in the corner of the screen door and wait for insects. Every evening she went about her craft a little differently, until she eventually perfected her method and moved her beautiful orb of a web to a nearby bush. By the end of September, she was fully grown, and had disappeared.

    We have spiders like this all over washington. Every summer they come out in force. This is a really cool piece. I wish i could do stuff like this.

    Sure thing! Orb Weavers are really quite docile. I tried to get one to bite a piece of straw once...it's quite amazing what they'll put up with. I donno if I could do that stuff or not. But it's great to see it done.
