“Not something you want to walk into early in the morning,” Grebe said. “This was built during the night, and the resident had not yet caught anything for breakfast.”

Grebe noted that she’s seen several orb spiders this year.

We also got a note from reader Cindy Padon, whose husband and daughter spied…something at 99th and Lamar last week:

My vote is for a fox with mange, but I’ve been wrong before. Anybody else have any ideas?
