Fishhawk Lake-The ARt of SpiDer WEbs
After spending a morning up on Greasy Spoon Road in a fall-like foggy dreamland, I noticed with the hazy sun filtering through that there were spider webs catching my eye in my peripheral vision as I would walk along and the glint of the sun would hit them just right and voila! a web would come into view!
Delightful, because at certain angles they were completely invisible. Having grabbed my camera, but not my "cheaters", my eyes were deceiving me and I really had no idea how these photos would turn out.
As a matter-of-fact, the very first large web that caught my eye because of the light shining in a certain direction turned out to have a spider locked prominently in the middle--showing off like the true artist that he was.
There were fully sculpted webs, wrapped amongst leaves, some sitting low to the ground, others draped high up above my head, like dreamweavers.
They were quite magical in their intricate patterns and I found myself newly obsessed with taking more and more photos of each new creation that I would happen upon.
Some had dewy strings, others had a Halloween-like eery quality about them. They were fully on display as if I were at a private artshow.
Each one was perfectly woven and they used a "mixed media" in their artwork.
If only we would stop long enough to see what nature's art has to show us, we would be in awe every single day of our lives.
