My sister makes cute beaded Christmas spiders – tree decorations- as gifts.
They came to mind yesterday as I walked out into the unusually warm weather (10 degrees Celsius) and happened upon this guy hanging by a web-thread from my mailbox.
He was spinning in the wind so I moved him to the porch railing.
Poor thing must be quite confused, this is supposed to be a rest time for spiders.
So this is a spider at Christmas time but it’s not a Christmas spider.
