During a lunch break from some extensive field work I stumbled onto a huge orbspider’s web. As I looked over the huge web I watched and photographed an orb spider just as a battle with a scorpion was to begin…. The spider quickly put silk onto the pinching and stinging appendages and really it was not much of a battle royal…. This spider was about the size of a silver dollar. Honestly, as I watched it made me feel small in the world – this spider knew exactly what to do and was deadly precise.
