Spiders web

The spider was nowhere to be seen, but I thought the web would make an interesting black and white study, with the dewdrops. This was taken at Otters Landing last weekend.

This is beautiful! I love looking at spiders' webs with the morning dew on them. I know the creatures freak a lot of people out, but not me! :D

I am intrigued by webs. Not a fan of the spider but I seem to be warming up to them more over the past year. This is a lovely!
When I first saw it it reminded me of an underwater shot :)

In response to your question on my last post....Do I live in the country? Yes, I do ...but not on a farm. There is a development here, so we have neighbors....and 3 miles down the road there is a University with about 25 thousand students....so I like to think we have the best of both worlds.

Impressive!
A very good shot and a perfect black and white.

Kerri, warming up is a good sign - next thing you know, you nmay even have one as a pet :)
With all the dew on this one it was almost an underwater shot.
Thanks for the background on where you stay - it explains all the open spaces

Tom, you had me and Sue rolling about with laughter about your fear of spiders. She was also scared of them, but I have trained her. A spider was almost the end of a good relationship when we first met.
I took her for a drive through the bush in an open Land Rover - we were not using roads. It was in the old Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) Next thing she was trying to climb into the back, because there was a spider at her feet. I was no Sir Gallahad and brushed off her fears very rudelly, I am told.
She was so angry she was going to get into her car and drive back to Salisbury without me. As it turned out I was the one with the petrol money - I am happy to say that my charm and her forgiving nature won the day - that was about 32 years ago.

Wow, looks like something out of this world, like something from outerspace landed and is starting to get a foothold here to overtake the world and all the living beings, probably just me watching too many space shows lately. Very cool pic.

Yummy in black and white!

Max-e very nice spider web. The interesting point is that there are quite a few posts with spider webs, must be something about spiders and the time of the year, lol. Thanks for sharing, Anna :)
