The Hunter and the Hunted

I think spiders are amazing creatures, using homespun silk to trap the insects looking to feast on my garden. As much as I love these hunters I also have an irrational fear reaction to them at a subconscious level. As ridiculous as it sounds, I lost count of how many times shivers ran up and down my spine as I was searching for the images for this post.

In the tall grasses
Spinning ’round your silky trap

The winged huntress waits

      So does my rational side… it’s that other side that sometimes decides to upstage all rationality. Its not like I run and hide when I see one, normally I’d trap it in a glass and take it outside but there is that startle moment when I first notice them on the ceiling or catch one scurrying across the counter. It was strange when I was surfing the pics at Unsplash. I was looking at them thinking cool, look at those eyes, or intricate webs, then I’d get a chill down my spine, back and forth until I found the right images.
