I love how diverse nature is, and I love how I never tire
of searching for more of its tiny hidden treasures.
I think this spider house is a perfect example.
It's not only beautiful, but also very interesting to look at.
To me it almost looks like a little boat, and if you look closely
you can see the entry/exit of this smartly designed house.
I love the way the spider manipulated the leaf around to suit
its final purpose. The spider is snug inside his humble abode and is
ready to ride out anything the weather brings him.
It can be cool inside if it's hot out, dry inside if it's wet, and warm
if the temperature drops.
It truly is a perfect house!!!
My photo doesn't show the spider, but if you look you can see his
dark shadow next to the entry door.

I spotted this beautiful little sparrow on a hike the other day, it's a
breath of fresh air after our long dark winter months.
I love their simple three note descending whistle in the springtime!
This little guy was still collecting nesting material. I guess their nesting
season is from early spring to August. Seems rather late for a bird nesting
in Alaska, but I'm sure they know what their doing! :o)
