I love spiders! Granted, not in my bed but I am simply amazed at their ability to create incredibly durable and complicated structures. This is a female Garden spider and yes, she is quite large. In a nightly ritual she consumes the circular interior part of the web and then rebuilds it each morning with fresh new silk! Each day begins with a new silk structure, what could be better than that?
