Suspended Animation

Sunlight on silk. Took a closer look. Hey, somebody’s in there!

Caterpillar. Butterfly. In. Waiting.

Watched this rock-a-bye baby for several days but saw no further change. Perhaps I’m just hasty. Time will tell the story.

  1. Are you sure that isn’t a spider’s snack that’s been wrapped up and tucked away for later? I wouldn’t even have thought of such a thing, except I watched a spider to exactly that, one night. It dragged a tiny moth up to a corner of the window, and secured it with some light threads. Then, it added some more, and left. When I got up three days later, every bit of it was gone — the moth, the silk, everything. Heck, we stock up on food. Why not the creatures? (Some do. Squirrels will dry fungus and keep it in little “pantries” for eating over the winter.)

    1. Linda! I just realized my response to your comment is missing. I think your idea of a spider meal is quite possible (thanks for suggesting it). It reminds me of poor Frodo in Lord of the Rings when he encountered Shelob the giant spider. I’ll check again to see if anything had happened. 🙂

      1. Don’t worry about being late with or forgetting responses. It happens to me, too. When I looked again at that webbing, I realized it looks different than any I’ve seen before. It’s almost chicken-wire-ish in its pattern.
