Hangin' on by a Thread

Williamsburg, VA

This little spider weaves a big, beautiful web (5 feet across +) in the bushes outside our kitchen window every night and takes it down by mid-morning the next day. Amazing!

After a small storm I shot this picture of it (apparently) trying to keeps it's web from falling apart.
