It's a very large web, and once it got dark, the spider's cunning was immediately obvious--bugs are drawn to the light on the other side of the glass door and flop straight into the spider's larder. I already watched it slowly and systematically annhilate a small lump of something. It has very large palps. The system broke down a little when a moth with a nearly two-inch wingspan arrived to beat at the glass--it rips right through the web without even noticing--but for the most part, it's like a small, somewhat digusting nature show happening less than a foot from my nose.
I have no idea how I'm gonna go outside and water the plants tomorrow, mind you, but I suppose I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.
