Close Encounters

I've had two recent encounters with spiders. Read about them (here).


  1. Enjoyed that - thank you! It's the kind of thing I'd do. Mrs B swears that spiders have homing devices on them and that the ones I carefully put outside find their way back in again. Didn't Robert the Bruce have a similar experience? Talking of swearing, I didn't know that the word 'bugger' was used in your country - not in that context anyway.

  2. Great post, thank you so much for sharing. I live in Montreal, Canada, so I hardly come across any spiders...let me rephrase that. I do come across spiders on a regular basis, but they are small such as the Daddy long-legs and such, and I find them fascinating. While I wouldn't want to hold one or have as a pet, I think they are amazing architects with the webs they construct. :)

  3. Daisy always makes me kill every spider she finds.

  4. I read about your experience with spiders and it left me chuckling. They always remember where to come back, don't they? :-)

    Greetings from London.

  5. First of all, good that you did not disturb the web. (it leaves you with a good feeling for the rest of the day)
    Once when I saw one, with the web, I liked the way it was highlighted by the rising sun. I spend almost half a day observing its pattern, taking pictures and finally writing a blog about it.
