Thirsty Spider Goes for a Ride

This fuzzy black spider was riding our backyard water fountain the other day. The little piece he's on dips into the stream of water every couple of seconds, and he was dipping his leg into the stream. I never realized before that spiders probably need a drink now and then. I figured they got most of their water from dew drops, or a source more convenient than climbing to the top of a three-foot water feature.

  1. Maybe it's like humans - everyone gets their thrills and necessities in different ways (grin). Enjoyed the photo. :)


Thanks for stopping by!
