    Orb weavers are snare hunters - they build large and impressive webs.

    The silk of a cousin of that spider, the golden orb weaver, has even been made into clothing.

    This gown took 80 people five years to make. So it's extremely expensive - though I doubt that tbe spiders get a large cut of the profits.

    (Yes, that's the natural colour of the silk).

    Our last trip to Maine this summer Late August.


    A laughing gull at Schootic


    A common Loon in the fog


    Two cormorants at the shore by the house


    A school most likely of mackerel off shore by the house


    A harbor seal feeding on the school of mackerel


    Some butterfly


    Sandpiper by the shore


    On Eagle Lake, a snapping turtle on a rock and a dragonfly on the snapping turtle


    A bald eagle at Jordan Pond


    A herring gull at the shore.

    15 minutes after taking the photo of the gull we got a call to come home. My dad was being taken to the hospital. About an hour later my neighbor called to tell me that my dad had died. https://talkfreethought.org/showthre...928#post710928
