Conversation Between Miss Beetle and Mr Spider

I have always had a fascination with insects.  My girlfriends and I would rescue honey and bumble bees from the waters of Keuka lake while we were swimming.  Usually as humans we don't consider insects to have any significant level of consciousness.  I had noticed this spider web on my windowsill.  It is near where I keep my hose.  I had seen the little spider peeking out.  Dad noticed it today, and I said, yeah, I should video tape it on my Iphone.  I apologize for the blurriness.  I am thinking I might have gotten a little Rosewood oil on the lens from my back porch step project this morning.

I set out to just make of video- of what ever occurred at that moment in the life of Mr. Spider.  He had no idea that he was going to make a fool of himself on YouTube.  What is interesting to me is the way Miss Picnic Beetle looks at him.  She specifically goes up to him, once when she arrives on the scene and again before she departs.  It is as though she is making some kind of speech!  It is also strange how the wind howls when she goes up to him.  Is she the Beetle Goddess of the insect world?  Does she command the forces of nature? ;-)
