Summer Spiders

One thing that has always signaled the end of summer for me is the appearance of huge spiders in my doorway. They have gorged themselves all summer long on moths and mosquitoes and they are spinning their last webs of the year. Where do they go after the first frost? Who knows, but they always return next year.

This fine fellow was hanging a web in my parent's porch in Virginia.
