I couple of weeks back I stumbled across this lady when I was cleaning the back yard. I have a healthy fear of spiders and usually kill on site. Before I jumped into primal action I thought, “She would make some good stock footage”. I filmed her struggling with dinner for 5 to 10 minutes. We actually had a little history too. A few months prior I found her when I was cleaning the grill and thought I got her with the pressure washer. I wrecked her home once, tried to kill her, she survived and rebuilt. Needless to say I could not come to preforming my instinctual duties. She is outside, not harming anyone and keeping the other pest at bay. The violence stops here. I started catching grass hoppers for her and tossing them in the web. A peace offering. I have an new found respect. Oddly enough I sleep better now, knowing we have a Warrior Queen outside defending us from more aggressive spiders and scaring off vermin.
