Outside My Window

It's cool and foggy outside my window. There's something in the maple. Can you see it? Look up near the top- at the center. It's not a bird. Click to enlarge the view.
As the breeze moves across it reminds me of harp strings.

Love that spider web. It looks like a nice pattern for a special doily for the middle of the dining room table. Your close-ups are fabulous. Like they say "Keep looking up".

OMG! I've never seen one that sturdy and HUGE! What was the spider like? I get the shivers.

Great photo, Lynne! The second photo is so graceful.

Usually when I see a spider web it gives me a creepy feeling. But this one is very flowing and whispy and beautiful. Quite a creation, a real work of art. What great eyes you have!

Jayne said...

How COOL Lynne! Love the shots!

Cathy said...

Lynne! That is the most gorgeous spider web - ever! Oh I wish you could share a video of it wafting in the breeze.

A giant spider web! Oh Lynne, how cool is that? And you never would have seen it without all the humidity (sometimes fog is good)!

This seems to be the season for spider webs. I see them capturing morning dew everywhere.

LostRoses said...

Lynne, that must be one of those orb spiders. I'm sure glad you posted a shot of the web and not of him. Like Mary, I'm getting the shivers thinking of it! Though it is a thing of beauty, if you don't think about it too much.

Okay. You rock.
That web reminds me of a bridal veil...and I guess it could be, for a pair of randy spiders.
(Sorry...got sex on my mind...just came from Mary's blog. Okay, that sounded really weird. I mean, she brought up the pigeon porn thing...oh, I need to shut up.)

Spider webs are amazing works of art and you have captured it beautifully. Isn't Athena the goddess of weavers? She was smiling on you!

Susan said...

great photos, Lynn!

Ruth said...

I would have loved to watch that beautiful web being created. Such precision and symmetry.

Drops of water along the strands look like a string of pearls!
I have never seen a web that Large!

Cathy said...

Susan Gets Native is a HOOT!

Sandy said...

That is a beautiful web. We usually have lots in the field behind our house, but not this year.

Love that last shot.

Larry said...

It really is nature's art!-You have a good eye to capture this special photo opportunity.

Oh Lynne, congrats on having the camera at just the right time to capture that beautiful dew-dropped web. I sometimes see them here and there on utility wires, trees, fences--and I NEVER have the camera with me! Nice work.
