For the past 6 weeks I have been recovering from a spinal fusion surgery, so have not been able to go out on any photo safaris. I have been walking daily but only in my neighborhood. This week I ventured on a short photo safari at SugarcreeK Metropark which is but a few minutes from my hone and where there is a short accessible trail. It was sunrise and a misty morning. What rising sun and dew revealed in the fields were dozens of spider webs.
While the arachnophobes will not appreciate this, I found the countless webs to be works of art. I did not see any of the artists, but nature is full of such talented creatures. The rest of this blog will be a gallery showcase for these 8 legged spinners of webs.
Sir Walter Scott penned the famous words,
“Oh, what a tangled web we weave
When first we practise to deceive!”
I did note that the Bible has almost nothing to say about spiders, which is surprising since they are ubiquitous in the world.
