And yet, I couldn't help myself seeing today these new poppies:

And another sign of spring:

Heh... I figured that Tarantula silk would be the diameter of parachute cord...:wow:

Does that form a funnel with a tarantula at the bottom? :shudder:

Yep. Entire hillsides are now covered with new silk. That means at the end of September, when mating season comes, the trails will be crowded with amorous spiders. :rofl:

Book your tickets now for the famous and unique Tarantula Festival (http://www.coepark.org/tfest.html). We celebrate the little critters here. :cheerleader: :yourock: :supergrin:

You can even play with them (http://www.pbase.com/image/34476457/original) (yep, that's me under the spider ;)).
