  8. Great shot. One of these days I will get to take a photo of a web that looks half as good as this. Tricky subject.

      I’m blushing, thank you, Victor! The fates were with me. Early a.m., still foggy, the light illuminating all these webs on the dead tree, it was perfect. If not for the heavy dew, I expect these would have been invisible as they always are, hidden in plain sight.

    Keep it for Halloween! He he he. Great pic, Eliza! Cheers!

  10. I am always left with a feeling of amazement when I see a beautiful spider web. Nice capture. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I happen to be one of those people who likes spiders. And their webs fascinate me. This really is a gorgeous shot Eliza.

  12. B.M. Bailey says:

  13. A tricky subject, you captured it beautifully.

    A prelude to The Twilight Zone! Great shot!

  15. always such a symbol of feminine power, in my mind.

  16. Jewels says:

    Never thought I’d be saying this about a spider’s web, but… beautiful!

    The original crochet club. ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. how amazing and intricate! Spider webs are ultra-fascinating! Great find, Eliza! You have a keen eye!

    Just got this mail at around 4:30, Sunday pm, Boston, MA time ๐Ÿค” Was going to write: gorgeous photo, webs are so hard to photograph…but everyone has already covered all those remarks. Look at how the anchor threads are looped around the twigs. Ruby Throated Hummingbirds use webs for making their nests. There’s been a very long legged spider sitting on a fern for days, here. The tip of the fern has been turned into a web “hide away.”

    • Eliza Waters says:

      A lot of birds eat spiders, probably higher protein than the plant eating bugs ๐Ÿ˜‰ I noticed sapsuckers the other day, flitting in and out of the this tree and I couldn’t figure out what they were doing, but now I realize they were probably after spiders in their webs.
      I didn’t realize you lived so close to me – I’m in the Pioneer Valley. ๐Ÿ™‚

    PS..don’t know why it says “3:54pm” when it’s โ€4:54โ€. Very odd!

  21. Kathy Sturr says:

    Just LOVE … seems the spiders in your neck of the woods are well balanced. I find it interestingly sad that when stressed their webs lose their geometry and symmetry.

  22. Laurie Graves says:

    Now that’s a “keepah,” as we would say in Maine. What a shot!

  23. Great find and capture … one of nature’s wonderful designs!
