Webs, Morning Dew

On this morning's walk along Salmon Creek the dew had settled in tiny droplets on spiderwebs in the brush, creating a lacy network that looked like ghostly wraiths dancing among the trees, or gauzy kites caught up in limbs. When I walked back by twenty minutes later the moisture had evaporated and the webs were nearly invisible; a condition the spiders no doubt preferred. It was a reminder of the myriad aspects of nature that go unseen or unnoticed, even when one thinks they are paying attention. Our world is gloriously complex.

You have painted this so perfectly - what a great subject. I love looking at webs in grasses and trees, there is so much mystery to it and you have captured it!
