This little yellow character, maybe slightly larger than a pinhead, built a web on our balcony, precariously strung between one of the stakes for our tomato plants and the top of a boxwood shrub. When the sun came up in the morning, he was ready with glistening threads to catch some breakfast.
Hopefully he was successful; there are plenty of little gnats and flies around the houseplants on our balcony. I can't be sure, though. I went out in late morning and when I returned in the afternoon, he and his web were gone.
(This photo, by the way, was taken with my old camera -- the only one for which I have a macro lens. I hope to get a new macro to go with the new camera, which hopefully will result in sharper, more detailed shots!)
