Dangly Bits

 
I now have a special Spider Stick by the back door, it's beginning to look a bit like a stick of candyfloss as I use it to fight my way Zorro-like thru' the webs that the autumn spiders choose to spin across my path down to the garden each day. Me thinks they're spun to catch me, & make me squeal like a girl as they stick on my face and get caught up in my barnet, rather than to catch unspecting flies as they pass.
Good job my camera has macro & a decent zoom lens in order to get a close up of this critter, one false move & I'd have been running for the hills.

I'm not sure if your 8-legged friend is creepy or beautiful. . . Hmmm.
