Arachnid Stowaway

This spider is amazing, despite its diminutive size. It lives in the side-view mirror of my car, and uses the reflected streetlight to catch its dinner each night. When I leave in the morning, it moves in and out of the mirror’s safe interior while cleaning and repairing the web. Twice now, it has fixed its web while going 70 mph on I-526, while I stare open-jawed from inside. What an odd place to thrive.
