Nicely Spun


Out early yesterday morning,  I spied some of natures's beauty.  




Webs were scattered all along the fencing.  




The spiders utilized the square as perfect frames.

  1. We have those big spiders with yellow on them building huge webs out in the garden. And then there are the little one with pointy bodies that are determined to keep webs across my path. They are interesting creatures.

  5. Hi Michelle These webs are wonderful. May I suggest if you are photographing these again, you take something black to put behind them and them shot them. I think that would be stunning. Just a thought.

  7. I must say....these are some neat pictures even though I am not a fan of spiders. I have been bitten by a brown recluse two times (2).. I'll have to blog about this someday!!
    Happy Sunday dear friend.

  10. I hope we get some like that too as we just had to fence in our garden with a five-foot fence due to bears visits. Those are the most exquisite photos. And the quote provides such perfect words for your photos. Are your bees doing OK, BTW? There's a big article in Time Mag. about the loss of bees and I haven't seen any around here either lately.

  13. Because we have lots of trees we have many spiders in summer, I have noticed some of the biggest webs are built by the smallish spiders.
    I like you pictures with the dew drops on them, often our weds are gone in the morning.

  29. So what is art, anyway? And spider-art kills. Eat your heart out, Andy Warhol.

  31. One of the first things I had to get used to when we moved to the country were spiders... They are everywhere out here! I now appreciate them and love their webs. It's amazes how some of the small ones can make such a big web. I agree those fences sure do make nice frames for them :)
