Lovely! I envy such mornings. We don't get them much in the desert, alas.

These wonderful webs make you think. I would like to know more about the material from which they are woven. Apparently it is immensely strong. At the back of my mind is a science fiction story about bullet proof vests woven from spiders webs. Or have I imagined it? Or is it true?

Barrett Bonden said...

Ah, Marja-Leena got there first. Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness and a tendency to re-tweak blog title box graphics (see Plutarch too). Must master the fadey colour thing which no doubt hides deep in Photoshop.

Dick said...

Beautiful. Taken on the posh camera, I hope!

Isabelle said...

Very beautiful but just a weeeee bit spidery for my liking.

I'm ok with spiders as long as I know where they are. But where are those ones?

Sheila said...

These are gorgeous! Nature amazes me over and over. Thanks for seeing these and sharing them.

Lucy said...

Thanks all. It was a lucky moment with so many webs, morning light and plenty of dew. By the time I came in for breakfast, they were drying out and disappearing.

They are tremendously strong I think, and yet they seem to fade away by the end of the morning. Perhaps the spiders come round and roll them all up again!

Dick, yes, it was the better camera.

Isabelle - I don't think the spiders are very big ones!

The warp and weft of nature.

Reluctant Blogger said...

Yes, we always admire the webs in the morning as well. I always have one on each side of my car - built from the wing mirror and the children watch to see how long they last as we drive off.

We also have a spider who builds a web on the bench next to our garden wall. Every time I sit there I have to destroy it and every day she builds it again. Poor thing!

Hope all is well.

Joe was very pleased with his photos. He is particularly fascinated by the fish in barley.

I seriously love those photos!
Wel, I know that sounds a bit childish, but hey... I am old now!!

Dave King said...

As ever, images to drool over - and objects of envy. Marvellous.

Bee said...

Garden webs are so much lovelier than the ones that hang from my beams!

apprentice said...

These are gorgeous.

I am staying at a friend's house here in Prescoot and her son and I are trying (for hours!) to identify a spider outside the lower level door - tried all words (crab spider, shell, horn/ed...) and cannot find. Took a pic and if I can post a pic within the next few days I will however, my digicam is blurry (OK! I shake!!!) - description...about 1" - 1.25 " long, bulb body (white - looks like a shell), 8 legs, spun a web about 9 - 10" in diameter - blubous "butt", 'shell' almost looks like it has a few horns...can anyone help? Please email penti2009@gmail.com - THX!!!
