One of many, many, many spiders I ran into today. One source tells us that in the early fall there are over 2 million spiders per acre of meadow. Isn't that awesome?

Can I politely answer "No" at this point?

If there's two million spiders in the acre of meadow, there must be 10 million insects. Sort of takes the shine off the romantic lovers lying in the cool grass image.

It's a good year for them here too.

But Bloggy, lots of those spiders are itty bitty baby ones -- you would hardly even notice them :)

FC, it's not the thought of all those insects that takes the shine off -- it's the reality of all those seed ticks ;)

No kidding to the lovers in the grass thing.

Early September saw our fields almost white with reflected spiderwebs but in the last few days, I've hardly seen any. It's way to early for them to have disappeared. I wonder what they are up too...Be right back, I think I heard something at the door...

You should have heard Bloggy Jr last night when he saw the spider and the horsefly.

Talking and turning away in one motion, "Oh gosh!"

Yep, he's my boy!

2 million? Gulp. I hope most (all) of them are those incy-wincy varieties ...
