I think spiders are cool. My dad captured this beauty on film in my garden a couple of months ago, and even spider-haters have to admit that it's fascinating to look at. Spiders are unbelievable engineers with their web-making, and most species' status near the top of their food chains means that they take care of far more annoying and dangerous pests (e.g., mosquitoes). Finally, the chances of getting seriously injured by a spider are woefully overrated. If you see one, don't kill it; just take it outside!
