[OT] – Cool Spider

I was out cutting the grass this morning and almost ran right into this web with this Banana spider in it. As I was taking some pictures a small grasshopper got stuck in the web and the spider immediately jumped into action wrapping it up and I assume biting it as well. It then went right back to where it was before hand and waited for its meal to ripen. I thought it was pretty cool and hopefully you will as well.

That's why Andrew's Post Title starts with "[OT]" - it means "Off Topic", and so this lets ou know not to click if you are just after SQL information. Sometimes it's good to take a break from work\study.

That is the worst bit of web design I have ever seen - that spider wants to normalize.

We always called those "writer" spiders because of the beautiful zigzag pattern in their webs.  I once read that the zigzag perfectly reflects in the UV spectrum, which appears like sparkling flower nectar to butterflies.

These are not dangerous to humans. Nothing to worry about.
