At first I thought a bird hit the window. I opened it to check for casualties, and in she fluttered...

I've been waiting a long time to see a polyphemus in person. She's battered and spent, but still beautiful.

Fished this guy deep out of a lighting fixture in the kitchen where it was making a mighty racket against the sheet metal. Yay for chopsticks and dumb luck.

Guess who I found all spiffy and alert and about three inches across as I opened the door toward the shop room!

What a gorgeous fishing spider. Either she just got in, or there's more for her to eat in here than I expected.

[Fishing spiders are huge but ~ harmless. And yes, they really do catch fish.]

Last summer I bought a house in New Hampshire for living as well as greatly expanded workshop space. The kids are up here about half the time, and it's a holiday getaway for Camilla as well. I've been moving in slowly since July (Priusful by Priusful, with the occasional Minivan Marathon) and finishing the unfinished space inside one room at a time.

A few weeks ago, George apparently claimed one of the as-yet-unused rooms for his own workshop. (The other side says 'Do Not Disturb').
