This is what I opened my blinds to a couple of mornings ago!
Look again, he is a pretty scary looking thing! Come to find out he is a black and yellow ariope and harmless to humans. I was not sticking around to find out. I was so glad he was on the other side of the window. His web was huge! Jacob got a kick out of it. I am really becoming quite the "boy" mom. I couldn't wait for him to wake up and check this thing out. We loved watching him eat a big japanese beetle that he caught in his web!
