Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

Little Friends

I was cutting some brush when I spotted this little fellow busily spinning a web.She, and I say she, because she looks very, very pregnant did not take much notice of me.

 I guess the lens got a little too close at this point  as she bunched up and froze.

 Also she got a little shy at times, or maybe the anchor point had to go on the other side.
 The butt end view leaves something to be desired.
 You can see 6 of the eight eyes on this view, and the web.

 Up and down she went for about 15 minutes. I enjoyed the rest from chain sawing.

 OK, OK, Get that lens out of my space. You have been warned!
 That's better, now how about you getting back to work!
