    Wow! What a clever spider!! I wonder if this plant (some kind of allium?) was chosen for the structure for web construction or for the eventual blossom attraction? Maybe spiders don’t think about such things!

    • I didn’t mention it since I was “wordless” but the grass is a dark green bulrush. Spiders are indeed clever and there were countless examples of their dewy genius everywhere I looked. πŸ™‚ It’s hard to fathom what a spider might be thinking, but I am sure it does as I believe every living multicellular thing has something on its mind…even if it is just procreation or its next meal. πŸ™‚

  3. Nice webwork. I wondered if the plant is a sedge; then I happened to pause my pointer over the photo, and up came the title that showed it’s a bulrush. (My original comment ended up in a less noticeable place, so I’ve recopied it here.)

    Wow, fabulous capture, Steve! It reminds me of a fishing weir.

    I would have sworn this was a sedge, but I still have a hard time sorting out rushes, sedges, and so on. It looks to me as though the spider’s hoisted a sail; I wonder where it’s going?

    Wonderful web. I love to follow one of the concentric strands to see how its maker dealt with each step in its construction.

    • They are engineering geniuses. I photographed one of the finest woven webs that I have seen. It isn’t a very good image but the web kinda resembles a sheet web in its fineness rather than an orb web. I have no idea the occupant…an orb weaver no doubt. As I mentioned in another post, the least movement even from three feet away caused a lot of shaking as everything was entwined with everything else so I couldn’t get close enough to do a real spidey macro.
