Friday morning, when I looked out the window around 7 AM, the sun was shining. When I got up around 8:30 and pulled the curtain open, I was in for a surprise: a white mist had descended. I stepped out onto the front porch and there a huge spider’s web was suspended from the front railing across the porch for about three feet. I tried to take a photo but there wasn’t enough contrast to highlight the gossamer web. Then came the biggest surprise: I stepped out into the front yard and there, a multitude of webs were suspended from the stalks of chicory plants. I have never seen anything like this!
I tried to capture the event using my humble Iphone camera and wrote a haiku:
Under morning mist
stealthy artisans at work
weaving silken nets.
My experience fits into the Daily Post Photo Challenge: Rare, an invitation to post ‘something that stands out from the everyday’.
