Charlotte’s Supper

My mother has remarked several times that there’s so much interesting stuff to watch on the homestead, i don’t even need tv. She’s right. While Charlotte was living outside our kitchen window we had a 24/7 nature channel on spider behavior. It was like watching a really good documentary on orb weavers. One of my favorite things about having her over the window was that if i timed it right and kept checking behind the curtain throughout the night i could watch her catch and eat her supper.

I posted a bonus video of Charlotte repairing her web because it’s pretty cool to watch. She navigates the strands with such ease. She knows which ones are for her and which ones are for prey and she uses her legs to places the strands against already existing strands of her web. She’s quite skillful and makes quick work of it.
