Powell River security detail

In a corner of the closet in our Powell River motel room, this pretty spider stood guard, protecting us from the mosquitoes that otherwise would have devoured us.

Cellar spider, species unknown. These always pose so elegantly!

I have not seen one patterned like this before. It reminds me of those "art coffees".


  1. I love that you can see this spider and think coffee!!!

  2. Only you would see it as a guardian. We swear we don't have many mosquitoes at the cabin up the lake because of the bats that live under or roof and the swallow that live under the peak of our roof. - Margy

  3. Bats would have been good, too. I hate it when mosquitoes bite my toes while I'm sleeping.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
