South of Tonight

Sporadic murmurs and other pomegranates from a one-way street

Parachuting Spiders

Walking might be hazardous to your health. You may turn into a mummy.

Yesterday we took our dog, Freda, for her afternoon walk. It was a pleasant day with a slight breeze. Thousands of young spiders were parachuting in the air. Below you can see the silken parachutes that have wrapped around a sign post.

A brief film of the silk blowing in the wind.

If one remained outdoors long enough on such a day, would one become wrapped like a cocoon? Do I have enough time to find out? Help me Boris.
