Day 105 ‘Chaz’

A guess on my part really, but he looked biggish so I went with ‘he’s a chap.’ Taking out the rubbish one night, I got an absolute face full of Chaz’s house, and in between my ‘ewww‘ and ‘arggg I brandished my phone’s torch so I could see what lurked in the dark. There he was, in what remained of his shattered masterpiece. Front legs flapping indignantly in high dudgeon, “you great galloping clumsy ape, look what you did!!!!” Once I got past my, ‘ holy cow you’re huge, and I’m glad my face didn’t collide with yours,’ I did indeed, ‘awww look what I did.’ After flipping me a few more rude gestures, he began the clearly onerous task of putting his house back in order. I tried to get some better pics, but he worked at such a furious pace, probably spurred on by temper, it was impossible to get a still. I know it’s a commonplace thing, but sometimes when you pause to watch nature in action it is truly extraordinary. Every morning he packs it all up and retreats to the little house he’s made in the tree. This has been going on for a couple of weeks now, so I guess I have been forgiven. As the sun starts to set in the evenings, I get a kick out of watching him web dance, he’s mostly unperturbed by my presence, bar a few feet flicks signaling me to ‘back up a bit bub.’ If he decides to move on, I think I’ll actually miss him 🙂

Until tomorrow!
Thank you for listening.
