Dead leaves, attached by the decaying thread of a cobweb, floating in the breeze.

    I don’t like spiders, but they and their webs can be of help!  ;o)

    Spiders are our friends. They eat TONS of bugs that we really don’t need hanging around. If you read about them they are pretty interesting. The widows are the only poisonous spider we have in CA. They are so distinct that they are easy to avoid. And they are not at all aggressive. Just pound on whatever they are on and they will run away. Although, I do squash them when I find them in my garage and hanging around the garbage can.
