Arachne…

was a mortal woman and talented weaver who challenged Athena, goddess of wisdom and crafts. When Athena saw that Arachne had not only insulted the gods, but done so with a work far more beautiful than Athena's own, she was enraged. She ripped Arachne's work into shreds, and sprinkled her with Hecate's potion, turning her into a spider and cursing her and her descendants to weave for all of time.

The Nightjar

Caprimulgus europaeus ~  Is a small bird with huge eyes, it is mostly nocturnal and so is rarely seen.  Legend has it that the soul of an unbaptized child will take the form of a Nightjar, condemned to wander about the world eternally... Photo by Anastasia Traina ~ 2014~
