Woke up one misty morning and spider webs had been built all over the place during the night!

Beautiful capture, Kimi!!!! #4567409

Lynn Margason July 27, 2007

We have dozens of these webs and orb spiders, but I particularly like the angle you chose for this and the way the web is prominent against the dark but not solid background. Gives a definite sense of billowing. The spider on the side is eyecatching! Lynn #4567481

Thank you Linda and Lynn! I appreciate the comments! #4567573

Colleen Farrell July 27, 2007
