Default Spider at work

Took 64 images of this spider remodeling his web last Thursday morning. We were at Quivera national wildlife reserve about 2.5 hours from home. I don't have video capability on either of my DSLR cameras but when I hold the review button down I flip through them so fast it looks like video...Here is my favorite one so far....This is a garden orb weaver I think and he/she was a very busy spider....she had traveled 3 feet up a metal pole leaving new sticky thread to help repair holes in the web and was in this image about 2.5 feet out on the top spoke anchor line.

Thanks, Pansy! That must have been fascinating to watch.

It was Sabrina....I had never been able to see so close up (using macro lens on camera) just what the spiders did to create the web.....It was awesome...I would have taken many more photos but the light went bad and couldn't get a focus anymore.
