Boo !

Yes, I know. It's a little too early for Halloween. But still. These webs were just there, begging to be photographed. I saw them in our neighbor's yard, hanging from the cognassier (the quince tree) that we can see from our kitchen window.

The tree died this past year, but our neighbor loves the way it looks and she's leaving it there. On this particular morning, the tree was just full of these webs. They were between us and the sunrise, so we saw them glinting in the light. There were at least eight or nine of them. I didn't see a single spider, however.

It was a pretty foggy morning, and the fog had condensed on the webs. Spooky !


  1. Beautiful photos, isn't nature wonderful and you are wonderful for sharing it with us, thank you. Vida x

  2. Wow, those are really cool!

  3. I'm glad your neighbor left the tree for the spiders to weave their magic in. I don't think I've ever seen that many webs in one place. Spooky indeed.

    People around here are setting up their Halloween displays, many feature large webs but none as good as the ones you caught with your camera.

  4. Thanks, all. I'm wondering if we'll see them again this fall, or if the spiders have done their thing until the spring. Time will tell.

  5. Beautifully spooky!

  6. As a little girl, I spent hours watching spiders spin their webs. I could never, in all my life, kill a spider or be afraid of one. Those pictures are awsome.


Tell me what you think!
