Over a camera, a spider,

Moves forth and back like a glider…

Spinning its web

Before making bed,

Hoping for unwary colliders!

We’ve seen hornets, wasps and flies,

Become giant-sized…

The farther the focus

The more hocus pocus,

And the bigger they seem to our eyes.

The underside of this spider looks white,

At least near that shining spotlight…

Its legs all moving

And the web is improving,

Should be finished by morning’s light.
