It was a beautiful day today and so I decided to go in search of a few spring bugs. I was thrilled to find a little tick and a spider facing off on a grass stalk. They were in a stalemate. The spider was quite intimidated by the tick. He gingerly walked up to the tick but was too afraid to get by him. He walked back to his perch on the grass stalk. He kept approaching and backing away. Finally he stood up real tall on his eight legs, spun a little magic silk and slid off the grass stalk leaving the tick all alone to fend for himself.
