Master’s in Web Design

My son will be graduating this May with a Bachelor’s degree in Sports Administration and a minor in Business, and my daughter is pursuing Bachelor’s degrees in English Literature and Spanish, with a minor in Teaching English as a Second Language.  Well, I’m pretty sure Harriett, the spider who has starred in my recent posts, has her Master’s in Web Design!

Today, I caught her in the act of building a new web, and it was absolutely captivating!  Here are eight photos – one for each of Harriett’s legs – so you can ooh and aah alongside me.




As she went back and forth, shooting web from her spinnerets, I was happily humming the spiderman theme song.



It was amazing how quickly she worked.  I am not kidding when I say it truly made me marvel – both at her creation and at her Creator.



When she finally grew tired of spinning (or tired of me taking her picture) she stopped to rest awhile in what I assume will be the center of the web.


While I still don’t want any Harriett’s in the house, I have certainly enjoyed watching her these past several days.

  1. Wow! Such great macro shots of Harriet! I sort of have a hard time looking at her, but had to think past my “fear” of spiders to really revel in the beauty of it all! Thanks for sharing Kathy!

    1. I find her a bit unnerving, but I have a growing fascination with watching her. Spiders in the house is a whole different story – then I grab a shoe and not a camera!

  2. Wonderful shots! After seeing her amazing designs, how could anyone believe they, or even their spinner for that matter, came about by chance? God’s creation is amazing. 🙂

  3. That is some amazing spider. Spiders are the patron saints of us (we?) fiber artists. The Navaho especially revered their weaving prowess. (K)
