Take a moment to marvel at this spider. Last week, we had a similar spider build a web nightly across our patio. Each morning she was gone and would build anew the next evening. When we went out to throw watermelon or cantaloupe rinds into the compost, we’d come near putting our faces into the web then remember and back up and go around.
One night, I put some bits of tortilla in the web, and each time the spider would come down and detach the foreign object and chunk it out of her web. Truly amazing. This video is not mine but shows a similar spider and how fast it can build a web.
Typically people are either afraid of spiders, exterminate them, or they marvel at them but perhaps give credit to evolution. But here is another way to see God’s hand in creation. Who taught the spider how to do this?
