Sorta Spooky



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

I didn't take this picture on Halloween, but I did think of Halloween when I took it a couple of weeks ago. The water beads on the spiderweb seemed to call for a monochrome picture, so this is what I got.

Just be careful not to be trapped by this spiderweb.

It is really spooky to me, i did enlarge it and since i don't do spiders it made me shiver to think if i walked through it by accident. no ghost and goblins but SPIDERS. Yikes. great shot

Very interesting, George. So many water droplets on the spiderweb. Good capture. And perfect for Hallowe'en too. MB

Very spooky. If I accidentally ran into that, you would hear me screaming my head off for miles and miles and miles....

It was fantastic, George!

Great idea!

Hugs.

What a tangled web we weave...
Great shot and it is quite spooky.
I walked into a big web outside the other night...ewww!

You did a lot better than I did on your spider web. I could have probably gotten it better if I knew how to use the night feature on my camera. Have not figured that out yet.

This one needs clicked on, and sure enough, the water beads are lovely! Glad there was no mama spider around!

I'm always amazed at how spiders build these works of art.

You do a beautiful job capturing the complex beauty of the web, George. Really great shot.

Ben said...

That's amazing, and a very timely post! Looks like a galaxy or something otherworldly...

The picture is actually quite pretty. The water looks like little lights or beads - - - but I,too, would NOT be happy if I encountered it. We will have a few strands of web across doors some mornings and not see them until we feel them - - - eeewwww!

Loren said...

What a cool shot George! I LOVE it :) We put up a fake web on our front porch this year and you can't believe all the BUGS it has collected....I don't think I will do that again! LOL

Happy Monday :)

Shelley said...

Beautiful pic of this intricate web. I hope it's not an indicator of the size of the spider - EEK!! Lol!

George,
You asked about where the mesa in my photo on the photoblog was really volcanic. Yes, it is! It is from from lava rock flows. There are two major vocanos in this area...Mt. Lassen and Mt. Shasta.
