Cobweb in the fog

A few weeks ago, we walked out for our morning walk and it was foggy . . . and I noticed this spiderweb on the trellis that holds up the clematis.

It was probably there for a few days, but I’d never noticed it. Melisa was kind enough to wait as I shot a couple or twelve photos.

Cobweb in the fogI was looking for a way to show it better so I opened the garage to provide a dark background.

Then, I used the neighbor’s house as a background . . .

That proved to be enough contrast to show off the small drops clinging to the strands . . . although they are probably better visible in SmugMug.

Of course, it also shows off the structure and construction of it. I like the little bullseye pattern at the center.

Anyway, that’s the cobweb photos shot with the D7500. I also took a number of shots with the P900. I should compare the two . . . in another post. Also, I did not see the spider, so I don’t know the size or species.

One more, and we’ll call it a post.

Wait . . . how about a gallery of the above?

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

    It’s strange how the web pattern is mostly consistent and symmetrical – but the spider seems to lose the plot in some segments.

    Now that’s an architect and builder!

    There’s a modern gothic feel to these.

  4. Wowza! That’s impressive! The spider’s masterpiece and your beautiful photos of it!
    The first one and the fifth one…my favs!!!
    I wonder if the spider takes a long nap after completing that…or if he anxiously waits to see who is coming for dinner. ???
    HUGS!!! :-)
