spider webs summer pasture

Webbery Revery

Conditions are just right for gathering a harvest of web images from the pasture:

A fog hangs just above the grasses (soon to be mowed for hay), so there will be dew on the bowl-and-doily and orbweaver webs this morning.

Not a leaf is moving, so motion will not be a problem to create blur in the image.

And the low clouds are already moving south before local sunrise over the east ridge, so brilliant light will illuminate the webs against the forest behind, still in shadow.

Do I need more pictures of spider webs? Not exactly. But I will go out with my camera(s), even so, just┬ánot this morning: I’m heading over to a friend’s to pick up a truck load of donkey poop for gardening purposes, so spiderweb pix today will have to come from the archives. Enjoy!

  1. Some of these photos are truly unbeatable, but I am sorry you didn’t get to out and try to best them. Donkey poop. I hope it is more like compost than you make it sound.

  2. Oh yeah, this stuff is granular, dark and odorless. I’d prefer COW to horse or donkey since the stomach of the cow digests cellulose more effectively, but I’ll take whatever organic matter I can get for the mid-year garden, as a side-dressing this year and towards improved tilth for years after that.
