The Wolf Spider

It was foggy this morning, and as I returned from my walk I caught sight of a wolf spider web on my neighbor's front lawn. Later, I showed Zaya and Mim, who were fascinated, of course. They immediately ran home and started playing "Wolf spider and grasshopper."

First, Zaya spun a web, walking in tighter and tighter circles. Then he sat in the center and spat viciously at the approaching grasshopper, who barely escaped with her life.

The disgruntled wolf spider was left scowling in his web.
