Photo and caption by Jessica Kovalcik
This photo was taken in the upstairs bathroom in my house. I was torn between saving the insect and letting the spider have a good meal. So what did I do??? ...take a photo of course. I felt a tiny bit bad for the little critter (what a way to go), but ultimately, I don't like bugs in my house. I love the details that this photo captures. One can see the bug struggling to get out as the spider meticulously spins her web around it. It is fascinating to watch spiders work and, well, if the little spider hadn't taken care of him I would have had to do it myself.
