8/16/13 - Sterling yard -  This morning while filling the feeders I found a Ruby-throated Hummingbird caught in a spider web. Closer observation revealed a large, (very excited) reddish-brown spider working his way towards his trophy. When I reached up to assist the hummingbird it sputtered around and broke free from the web on its own and flew off. One of the more interesting observations I've had in the yard. Welcome any comments on the spider I.D.
