January 3, 2017

Location: St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park, manatee overlook at the spillway

I took this picture after my 7:30 manatee watch.  There are always a ton of these webs along the chain link fence that goes over the spillway.  I am not sure of the species that made it, but I suspect it was some kind of nocturnal long-jawed orb weaver, as it was clearly built over night.

Personally, I picture a little spider in eight high heels singing the Rihanna song "Diamonds"1 as she decorates her little web with bling.
