A few days ago, we took a walk through Huntley Meadows wetlands park. We were hoping to see raccoons, or even the rare roseate spoonbills that are usually not seen this far north, but that have been hanging out there this summer. We did see great blue herons, some turtles, and a muskrat. But the first wildlife we spotted was this spider, who had built a magnificent web. I got only one quick shot of it; the mosquitoes around it were outrageous, which I supposed is a testament to the spider’s brilliant choice of location.
