Crazy man swinging stick
Posted on 27 Jul ’09 by Earl Moore
If you’ve walked along a seldom used forest trail you’ve probably experienced your share of walking into nearly invisible spiderwebs.
I hate it when the web falls across my face and hair. After spending minutes trying to remove the web the thought of where’s the spider that spun this web begins to creep into my mind–still on the surrounding trees or perhaps now somewhere on me.
Just for this situation I’ll often find a stick about three feet long. I know I look crazed swinging this stick up and down in front of me as I walk (…no chance of wildlife shots). A better method is to invite a friend and insist they walk in front!
Luckily (for me), the spider in this photo was not one I walked into. It looks like it can take care of itself.
