The Spider By The Porch Light

You’ll find the most beautiful monsters just outside your door.

Ah, the circle of life. As soon as I turned on the porch light this summer, this guy (or gal) would build a spiderweb and catch insects flying at the light. It was very impressive to see it crawl over to the insects and wrap them in its web. I caught it on video, too. You can watch it by clicking here. Then I went and got the camera and took some pictures. They’ve got some good detail to them even when I used a cheap-ish telephoto lens.
