The Architect

Ever watch a spider build it's web? I think I have always been fascinated with arthropods.

Take this one for example. I noticed it the other day from the living room window. It was about halfway through making it's web.

I tell you, I get mesmerized by these. With it's eight legs all contributing to the final 'outcome', it went through the seemingly delicate, accurate work as if it was nobody's business.

You have to appreciate the spider's programming/instinct. I suppose since it's been around for over 200 million years or so, it has had time to fine-tune this survival skill.
