Farewell to a Spider

She's gone.  My beautiful spider has vanished.  We had torrential rains last night but my Argiope had come through the remains of hurricane Isaac intact, without even any damage to her web that I could see.  But now she is gone.  All that remains are a few silky strands of her web.  I have looked around, of course, but I can't find her.  I know the world of a spider is full of dangers, so I should not be surprised.  I'm not, actually, but I am sad.  She was such a beautiful creature.  I would like to think that she has simply moved to a more protected spot, but I will probably never know.  I was privileged to admire her, even for a short time.
