Hanging by a thread

Picture if you will, autumn in Oregon. It's 5 am, run the dogs and coffee time. The maple tree is just beginning to drop it's leaves. A leaf falls and is caught mid-air, tangled in a spider web.

Dangling for a moment, the spider descends, hoping for a tasty snack.

The spider was less than appreciative as the camera flashed and the weight of the leaf pulled at the web.

And within less than five minutes, the leaf got stuck and

the spider released it.

Oh, and just in case you are wondering, do I ever do anything besides run the dogs and take pictures?

Pretty much not. But I have enlisted the boys to help with the dishes.
