    i don't like them generally but, this spider made an amazing catch the other day. i was pouring a cup of coffee and noticed movement on the blinds. the fly didn't even have to get caught up in a web. it was sitting there and then along comes the spider and...GOTCHA!
    edited to add: the pic has been rotated 90 deg left. the spider is actually dragging the fly backwards up the blind. 8wheel drive. ha!

    You could do that to if you were powered by hydrolics instead of muscles.
    Way cool.
