The Daily Press Weekly Photo Challenge for the week of November 18, 2016.
For this week’s challenge, find some magic, and charm us with it.
A Spider’s Web
Silk-thin silver strings woven cleverly into a lair,
An intricate entwining of divinest thread…
Like strands of magic worked upon the air,
The spider spins his enchanted web –
His home so eerily, spiraling spreads.
His gossamer so rigid, yet lighter than mist,
And like an eight-legged sorcerer – a wizard blest,
His lace, like a spell, he conjures and knits;
I witnessed such wild ingenuity wrought and finessed,
Watching the spider weave a dream from his web. — Jonathan Platt

this looks like a spider’s version of bunk beds. Good you were out and about in search of nature’s unusual sights. Always a fun post!
It does, doesn’t it! 😀
Lovely series of photos! A spider web featured in my photo for this challenge too. 🙂
Well, great minds think alike of course! 😉
I like your spider very much; maybe you noticed the spider in my photo…but it’s much tinier than yours. Cheers!
