Spider art

A couple of weeks ago, we woke up

To the eerie sight of a world wrapped in

A cocoon of spider webs.

The sparkling grass

Rocked a small web hammock to sleep.

A luminous spider

Hung suspended on a necklace of pearls.

And I saw the universe

Beautifully reflected in a row

Of crystal dew drops.

  1. So unusual. I’ve seen something of the same in a particular area in our country. It is eerie but also beautiful. Your images are wonderful.

  2. Beautiful shots, I love the soft draping feeling of spiders webs, but only in photographs.

    I read somewhere that if there are a lot of spiders webs during the autumn months it will be a hard winter…I so hope that’s not true.

  4. The spider web is a delicate wonder– although also wonderfully creepy. You caught the wonder and completely dropped the creep. Terrific photos!

  6. Spider webs are so magical! I love how intricate and fine they are! I also love seeing spiders outside. (In the house, I capture them with a clear plastic cup and escort them into the garden.) I had the privilege of seeing a spider hatching a couple of years ago. Thousands oftiny sparkling golden spiders throwing up little webs into the breeze and taking off to live their lives! It was one of the most charming things I’ve ever seen. I only wish you could have seen it and taken one of your unforgettable photos of the sight! Me with my iphone camera didn’t have a chance!

  7. I always wonder whether or not I get rid of it when I see its great work in my garden. Glints in the sunlight or in the dewdrops on it look magically beautiful.

  8. Hi ladyfi,
    As cosmos said, I also hesitate to remove spider webs. When my son was a little child, I read “Charlotte’s Web” for him. Since then he had never allow me to get rid of the webs. And now spider webs are my favorite objects for a camera.
    The spider net with rain drops in your photo is far more beautiful than diamond necklace for a princess. Exquisite art!
    I will go out to look for webs , grabbing my camera.
