the spider's web

"There is nothing more inspiring than seeing a spider working her web, her craft, with such perfection and careful patience." ~Sunil Khemaney
today i was wandering the yard...taking pictures of i saw this banana spider weaving her web. forget about the flower pictures for now! today it's the spider! their webs amaze me and i was mesmerized!
i knew the day was off to a good start when the first thing i saw this morn when i stepped outside was a dew covered web. shining...glittering! what does it all mean? my enchantment with spiders and webs?!
i don't know!  the spider's web...nature...the web of life. all living and non-living things depend on all other things for survival. everything's connected.  like the spider's web, in the web of life...if one tiny strand should start to unravel everything around it will be affected!
 guess i did know after all!
nature fascinates and inspires me.

  4. Hi Laura, I, too came over from Susan's This N That. You, know, I did read this post back then, but was too shy to comment. How cool, to capture a step by step work of art. And the final photo-a glistening piece of work!
