End of summer in Ferndale means it’s spider season. Just about every available space on the house, cars, and in the garden are covered with spider webs of one sort or another. When you walk around, the ground appears to move as all the little ground spiders scurry to avoid getting tramped on. Leaving the house in the morning becomes a challenge, as there are whole colonies of big garden spiders who are intent on trying to catch us in their webs. I decided to get out the macro lens and take a few pictures of them one morning, and then I thought why not give you all a macro tour of the flora and fauna in our garden.
