Spiders in the Mist
Today began a very
foggy morning. I love how everything looked so soft and muted. I
grabbed my camera, donned my mud boots, and went out.
While I was walking
about, I began to notice huge spider webs in the trees and bushes.
There were even funnel webs in the grass.
The webs might be a
little difficult to see at first in these two images, but they are in
the lower left areas. (click on image for better view)
I had to do a lot of
dodging because there were long strands connecting the tree branches
to each other and nearby plants. Some were nearly twelve feet long.
The spiders must have flown in the breeze to make these long
connections. Looking closely, they appear almost like laundry lines.
