While I'm not a fan of all insects, spiders, and other assorted bugs, there are some that are just fascinating. In the fall, we have two flowering plants that are magnets for bees. The plants almost seem alive, there's so much activity. One is a fall flowering clematis, the other a sedum. Both are covered with bees on a sunny day.

But I think the spiders, with their intricate webs, are the most interesting to watch. This one had a huge web - partially attached to the bird feeder. At first I couldn't see the spider, but there she was, hiding in a leaf of the tree at the top of the web....I believe she caught some prey.
