Tuesdays Treasures…Oh What a Tangled Web We Weave


One of my favorite times for our walk is early morning when the woods are covered with a soft blanket of fog. 


If you open your eyes wide and look carefully you can see the intricate and beautiful handiwork that Mother Nature provides for us. 


  • In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
    John Muir
  • What is the good of your stars and trees, your sunrise and the wind, if they do not enter into our daily lives?
    E.M. Forster

A walk in nature takes the soul back home.

Those are some amazing photos, with an amazing amount of detail.  Spider webs are incredible, although I have a slight fear of spiders, haha.

Hi Kathy,
When I got into Macro photography a few years back, I gained a greater appreciation for the small details in nature. It really is quite fascinating.

May 28, 2024 10:12 AM

Carol Williams it is!!!! Sometimes I can't get as close as I'd like  (snakes, etc.)  but I love macro photography.

Good morning Kathy,

OMG I love all the photos! Mother Nature has something at every turn to appreciate and sometimes we are too blind to see the offerings! I love the John Muir quote, it sums it all up!

Love the photos.  My idea of an early morning walk is from the bed to the bathroom and back to bed.  LOL!  I do work fulltime but am not an early riser unless required for work.  Have a great week!

The wonderful, sometimes whimsical webs that spiders create mesmerize me but wouldn't want to run into any of the spiders while their working, Kathy Streib! 😳

Beautiful photos! You'll have to do the early walking for me, Kathy. I've been told repeatedly that early morning is the best part of the day, but I wasn't wired to get up early. I am the typical night owl!
