Saturday Snapshot

A foggy late summer morning.
August 2008

We had walked by this field a number of times without noticing all the spiderwebs. It was only after a heavy dew settled on them that they suddenly became visible.

Incredible how they can weave such fine details!

Laurel-Rain Snow said...

Oh, my, what talent! And I'm not just talking about the spiders with their web creations...LOL.

You have a knack for capturing those moments in nature.

I'm astonished by the beauty in nature all the time, and seeing it photographed...wonderful!

Wow! I love taking pictures of webs. Very nice!

food for thought said...

look at them all!

Alyce said...

Ah, pretty and creepy all at the same time! :)

Leslie @ Under My Apple Tree said...

That is beautiful! I keep trying to photograph the spider webs and they never come out right. Now I know the trick... the right dewpoint.

Bev Hankins said...

Oooh! Great picture. Love the spider webs...spiders not so much...but their handiwork is quite lovely when caught by a good photographer!

bookquoter - they are amazing little creatures, aren't they?

laurel - thanks, yes so much in nature goes by unnoticed that I like to see if I can 'frame' some of it whenever I can.

jl jackson - webs are beautiful feats of engineering. Even all their little flaws give them character making for great photography subjects.

food for thought - yes, I was amazed just how many there were in that field. It was like a spider city.

alyce - lol yes creepy too! Nothing makes me more jumpy than the thought of walking through spider webs.

leslie - the dew certainly helps. I never thought of it either until this happy discovery one morning in August.

bev - thanks, webs are such wispy things they don't always cooperate for the camera. This one did, though.
