Life

Just sitting here thinking about this beautiful photo that my husband captured through the lens of his camera. This diligent spider had intricately spun his delicate web in our Japanese Maple Tree.
Amazing creatures, these little spiders that stroll around our yard.
Just click on the photos to see how each strand of the web glistens in the sunshine.
Truely breathtaking!
For something so small, they have a huge amount of perseverance.
Strength.
A little blessing for the day. Thank you, Mr. Spider.

We have many of those spiders too. Sometime I will walk through the garden and not even see their web until it is stuck to my face. Yuck!

Stay Cozy, Carrie

I love photographing spider webs. They are industrious little critters that spin those webs craftily and expertly. To me artwork to behold!

It's funny how something so common suddenly stops and makes you think! There was a huge web outside my kitchen window and I huffed outside to "swipe it down". Getting ready to strike with the broom, I suddenly got a really good look at the web. The spider was sitting on the web, and the web itself was absolutely perfect! All that work it had done, just to catch its next meal, the poor wee critter. Knowing how much work I put into crafting or decorating my home, I could suddenly relate! (And the only thing that catches food in my home is the the frig!) So, there it stayed with strict instructions to Artie not to swipe it down. He was convinced I was on the verge of a breakdown or something!
