At Sunrise: spiderwebs by the millions…

The sun peaked up over the hill behind me as I walked Boza and I turned to look at the sunrise. It was then that I realized the field behind me was a spiderweb haven. The morning dew was reflecting the sun beams and all I could see was millions of dewdrop sparkling spiderwebs. They were so thick, that they were on top each other. There was plants that had five or six webs each on them and all this appeared overnight. For I have walked this same path at sunrise many times…

None of the pictures I took were usable (I get frustrated with the inability to photograph what I see,) the sun washed the scene out and no webs showed, so I did the next best thing, I went to the next field, with many less spiders and at a different angle to the sun. Then found an area that I was able to get a shot and after 15 more pictures, I got one pretty good but still poor image… (above)

I have seen this before many times, just not with so many webs. It really was a sparkling sight and I am always in amazement by nature, she is so resilient and beautiful…

Every spider I could imagine from a tunnel spider to a garden spider, had woven last night. The field had a dozen webs yesterday and today, the spiders put on their dresses…
