Each spider has its own section of the railing at the Oak Point lake dam. They must sign a lease for a single-occupancy room with a view. If you aren't looking for them, the long-jawed orb-weavers won't get your attention like a black and yellow argiope. There are so many spiders at the dam. Are they siblings? They look pretty well fed considering their squiddy skinny physiques.
This day, I'm noticing the long Y shapes in their webs that look like water-ski ropes. My water-skiing career was brief, just the year '72-'73, and included about three ski opportunities with a grand total of maybe 45 seconds of euphoria.
