Spider on the deck
I was grilling some chicken on the deck last night and found that I had some company. I turned and saw that our friend here had spun an enormous web between the deck and the house. It was worth his time and trouble. Many a poor moth had fumbled into. He had spun little sacks of silk around his prisoners, saving them for feasting at a later time.
But as I watched, he crawled across the web and began to suck one of the little sacks dry. It was disgusting and fascinating at the same time.
Clearly, it had to be sketched.
