Out After Dark...Redux!

redux: adjective
1. brought back
2. revived

Last week's post needs to be brought back and revived. Someone was missing from the party...

In last week's post I shared our close encounters 'Out After Dark' with a snake, a hedgehog, and a demon-eyed dog.

Then this week this hanger-on showed up on the light post outside our building! Welcome to the party, Spidey!
 
Don't the markings on the underside of the body look like a face?





















With the flash reflecting off the bushes.
From the 'front' side.



He/she is well fed. I wish we had an object of comparison in the picture, but it is a little bigger than a quarter (including its hairy legs and fat body). Big enough that Maureen gives it a WIDE berth when going past the light post.

Today's poem is Spidey's perspective on being included in this redux blog post. Read at your own risk:

Sheesh,
there they are again.
Those two-eyed
two-legged
noisy
nosy 
GIANTS
tromping around my web
like they live here!

Excuse me,
you don't see me going into 
THEIR homes...
OK, so you see me 
once I get inside,
but that's another story.

Back to the problem
at hand...
and I have NO hands!
These GIANTS and
their black rectangles
flash me with a
bright light and it
disrupts my dinnertime 
and life.

I know, 
if I move real fast 
like this...

"EEEEEK!"

Works every time. Hee - hee...
