Nature may seem out to get rid of us sometimes, but you have to stop and see the marvels it creates: I like spiders, I find them fascinating. I was not aware I had a new neighbor until today, when I took this picture. This is a somewhat big spider so I think it probable moved here from somewhere else.
Be as it may, I am happy to have it! The way it worked its web is amazing, and it was done in less than a night, which is an architectural feat I find simply jaw-dropping.
So yes, nature can be very mean, but also very amazing!
