I have NEVER been able to capture a decent spider web! I'm envious of your shots!

Cathy Keller said...

So delicate and beautiful!!! Have a grand weekend!

Vicki Lane said...

Ms. A -- these had dew on them which helps a lot in the capture. You can also take a spray bottle and spritz the web very lightly to help it show up.

Kath Marsh said...

Beautiful photos!!! And the one with the spider!

Martin Hodges said...

Wonder all around. You capture it so well.

Vicki, Wonderful photos of spider webs. In the spring here in Southern California the orb spiders hatch and begin to make little circular webs. They are beautiful. They have grace and athletic ability.

I remember back south the giant writing spiders that predicted either war or peace by writing a "W" or a "P" in their web. Are those still around?

Simply gorgeous capture of spider's work...aren't they also amazing!

Vicki Lane said...

Jim, I know the spiders you mean - tough I haven't noticed any this year. We call them garden spiders. I never heard the W or P thing -- I'll have to pay attention to the next one I see -- though I suspect the gene for writing P has disappeared from long lack of use.

There's so much magic in these pictures!
