an everyday photo, every day | photography • art • poetry




The web freshly repaired in such perfect circles, but no one was home. Perhaps this spider was a little more shy than the one from the other day.

We have damp mornings, but not dewy enough to leave moisture on the spider’s silk, so a clear photo of an orb is a challenge because spiders don’t tend to build webs in sunny spots. Here I had light reflected perfectly straight down from the sky with the web against a darker background. It’s not often I can catch the iridescent coating on the silk, and find those delicate rainbows.

  1. captured to perfection, (though the spider hasn’t succeeded yet) beautiful and deadly creations, I am so glad I am not a fly. 🙂 xPenx

    • Yes, with all the webs I see around here I’m glad I’m not an insect! But I’m glad the spiders are probably not interested in me, too.
