  1. Oh wow, that’s quite incredible.

    I remember a big garden spider got into my room once and was making a web about a metre across. Eventually I managed to get it toward the window after quite a lot of battling. The thing was probably about an inch long and more than half that wide, fat with eggs I think, but it just pulled it’s legs up and went flying off on a breeze. These are things that are heavy enough to almost hurt if they drop on you, but it seemed to glide perfectly horizontallly and it even turned a corner and disappeared around the side of the house!
