Spider Webs

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.

You can see all of the photos I took that day at Sugarcreek Park September Sunrise.  You  can find links to all such photoblogs at My Photoblogs.
