One Terrific Spider

For eight or nine days now, there has been a huge spider web outside on our deck.  It is perhaps 18 inches across, and a large spider has been spinning it.  She perches in the middle of it daily, hoping moths or other unsuspecting victims will come into her lair.  I say "She" but don't really know that it is a female, only suppose so.   Even during the rain and heavy fog this week, the beautiful web held.  It's a real feat of engineering, and a wonder to enjoy.
