Something Different

Actually, most of my posts are something different.  I don’t seem to follow any themes except for my walks and my desire to travel, but today, I’m talking about spider webs.

Spider webs can be beautiful or they can just be webs.  In South Africa, there were communal spider webs were hundreds of spiders live together in a large nest in the middle of the web.  Ooops – I got off track again – not that I really had a track.

Yesterday when Chester and I left for our walk, I saw 3 spider webs in the grass in my back yard.  There may have been more, but Chester had already been out in the yard and could have destroyed them by walking over them.  I also noticed them in several other yards as we walked and a couple of yards had dozens of these webs.

I’ve seen webs on grass before, but not to this extent – so I took pictures of the 3 in my yard when we returned.

It had rained over night, so maybe all the spiders in Winnipeg made new webs in the grass?

Doing a quick search online leads me to believe that these are from grass spiders.  I would much rather have spider webs on my grass than on the corners of my house near the doors – but I guess they are different types of spiders and maybe they eat different kids of bugs.
