Yesterday morning we had another lovely foggy start. I headed over to the Conte Refuge in Hadley to shoot, again, a walnut grove with straight rows and some mystery at the end of the row. Once done with that I walked the trail and noticed dozens or probably hundreds of dewy spider webs. They are hard to miss, especially when backlit by the rising sun.
I didn’t inventory them all, but the vast majority if not every one were Banded Yellow Garden Spiders which are another lovely species.
Banded Argiope-Argiope trifasciata. This one along with all its silk stands was covered with tiny dew drops.
