[Trigger Warning: spiders]
At least this posting has no Sam Harris content. Oh, wait, I just added some Sam Harris content! Should I add a trigger warning? Ni!
This is the Happy Hunting Ground, at around 8am. The morning fog hasn’t cleared, obviously.
In the background you can see the outline of the run-in shed and the barn. Yes, the fence is terrible. The people who installed it (well before I got the farm) were from Arizona and didn’t understand what frost does to fence-posts, so none of the posts are in deep enough.
The hunters are everywhere.
Different types of spiders seem to inhabit different regions in the field. This is the orb weaver zone; further up the path are all horizontal cup-webs. I forget the kind of spiders that make those, but they don’t seem to interoperate. I suspect that the regional preference for different types of spider depends on who hatched best, and who ate whom.
