Grid” is this week’s theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge.  Human aren’t the only one who produce grids.  Here’s a natural grid from one of nature’s greatest grid builders.

    Very pretty! I hate to be a copycat but I just took a spider web photo too. Of course, I haven’t uploaded it onto my computer yet so it may not have turned out.

    I wonder where the homeowner is. Probably off resting after all that grid building. Having a drink of dew as he/she awaits dinner.

  17. The spider did an excellent job of creating that web.
    Great photo, Janet. Perfect grid for the challenge.

    Stunning capture of the web, Janet!

  21. Wonderful picture, Janet. It’s one that I’ve wanted to capture with the plethora of webs in my yard for the last few months (the subject of my “creepy” post on which you commented). While I was not able to get a natural dew shot, I cheated and sprayed one with a fine mist, getting a similar result.

    • Great idea, Chuck. It’s amazing how many webs I spot in the park when there’s moisture on them. Otherwise, they’re invisible. And when the light hits them with the drops on them, it’s a gorgeous sight.

    My husband and I were just examining the different styles between two spiders working side by side in our yard this morning. What artists they are. We discussed how some people are so afraid of them when they are such tiny creatures. We think they are beautiful and fascinating, fun to watch but neither of us want them to crawl on us by surprise for fear of a bite. I think it’s kind of funny that it’s so tiny yet so many people are scared to death of them. They’re just busy weaving their grid. Going about their business. Love your pictures. I’m so glad I found your site.

    • Nice to meet you, Lisa. I’m with you and your husband: they do beautiful work, but I’d rather not have them crawling on me. 🙂 The moisture really highlights the beauty and also makes it easier to avoid walking into a web. When we go horseback riding in Wyoming in the summer, the first person always hits the webs, especially if s/he is on a tall horse. Not the most exciting experience. 🙂
