Last night before bedtime, I stepped into the backyard and found myself standing with a big red spider a couple of inches in front of my nose.

The spider was about an inch wide, and furiously busy tending its web, scurrying back and forth and moving its legs rapidly.

I took a step back and watched it for a while.

I tried to get a video but it didn’t come out great, and I know spiders give people the fantods so I won’t share the video here.
