Spider Web - 2005
On the morning of April 8, 2005, I awoke to find multiple spider webs on various plants (okay, weeds) in my yard. The morning dew and the sun highlighted them. They are probably always there, but one never sees them except when the conditions are just right. These shots are generally available for only the few moments before the sun moves and the dew evaporates. In fact, I was about to photograph one web and my dog hit the plant causing the dew to shake off, ruining the shot! Of course, if I was more diligent in mowing, they would not have been there either - how is that for an excuse? This web is obviously the work of a different type of spider than the web shown in the picture taken in 2004. This one is woven at random, whereas the web in the 2004 photo is intricately designed!
