This morning we had to get ready to take my granddaughter to the airport. While taking out the luggage, we saw this huge gorgeous spider web, so I had to go back into the house for my camera so I could capture it.It was wonderful to see it all tethered and blowing so slightly in a gentle breeze. I don't know what kind of spider is in the center, but it's pretty small compared to the structure! It amazes me by even judging by the spider's size that it's still several body lengths before it gets to the first cross piece in the center!
I love this angle shot! It's funny that you don't see part of the web tether on the right. It looks as though it is suspended in air.
In the photo below, you can see just how big it really is!
It was attached to the trees and the car. In this shot, it looks as though it is part of a sci-fi movie. The way the sun light is hitting it, it looks as though the spider is casting a lazer beam!
When we drove away, we broke part of the tether. It was a shame when the poor little spider worked so hard on it!
We stopped at the post office en route to the air port and witnessed some more awesome webs there, connected to the top of the telephone poles. Maybe they were trying to keep in touch with family as there were several "on line". It looked like the world wide web! lol I guess I should have brought my camera along, but then again, we may have never gotten to the airport!
Well I didn't do anything quite as fabulous as this spider, but you might say that I did a little web construction when I finished this pin cushion a couple of days ago.
I had seen one on a site, (I don't remember where now) and had it in the back of my mind that I wanted to make it. I looked, but never did find a pattern, so with trial and error, I came up with one I figured looked pretty close to it. It is given away already, so it never became tethered to my studio. Hmmm.... Perhaps the next one will, and just maybe, I need to use a little more thread, since I had a little more inspiration.
