The Watcher in the Kudzu
Over time, a hierarchy was established.
At the apex, perching motionless, ever watchful,
watching and watching, and watching still...
with all eight eyes...
sporting an invisibility cloak perfectly suited for this emerald sea, the ruler of this domain,
the Green Lynx Spider.
It is a fearsome predator, favoring bees and nectar-loving wasps, without regard for their pitiful stings.
The Kudzu kingdom has found its queen, an eight-legged one.
Wait... Is that a mockingbird I hear?!
