Today’s selfie was meant to have a spider in it, but the aracnid didn’t oblige as it was hidden away from the freezing cold! So, what you see is the gorgeous web that I captured on a frosty morning this past week.
I think it looks very elaborate and while the interwebs owned by cats, this does show the amazing work a spider puts in while we humans are asleep. An elegant leading line from the mid-left to the top sweeps your look from one slender thread to the busyness and strength of the web itself.
I realised when I downloaded the images that I had captured some sparkling frozen water drops too and I cropped a second photograph to give you a better look at the frosty spider’s web close to.
An hour or so later the web had lost the glorious sparkle and the spider was able to venture out for the day but thankfully I have my photos to share.
