About Today’s Photo:

Morning is a great time to go hunting for spider webs. This orb spider had spun her web near our raised beds in the front field. Morning dew clings to the web and sparkles in the early morning sunlight.

Nikon D600, Sigma 105mm macro, ISO 400, f/4.5, 1/2000″ exposure.

  1. Early morning is a good time to be trapped in a spider’s web. Our local orb spider likes the porch light and every morning recently I have been wearing her exceptionally tough web to join my friend walking her dog!

    • Yes, my morning runs through the woods would not be complete with at least one (or 5) webs in the face!
