I hope I never lose my sense of wonder. If that makes me naive, then so be it.

So pretty. Yesterday's dewy morning and sunrise in the mist gave me views of this from my window and beckoned me out with my camera, despite getting some very wet feet. All was golden and misty. How could I refuse?

I assume they are always out there in the summer, that the spiders don't wait until those conditions to set about their busy work. But it takes that perfect combination of dew and sun to make such a pretty picture.

I could see hundreds; half an hour later the sun was high and the webs had once again become humble and obscure. Some things on the farm demand immediate attention, like a predator near the chickens or the cows escaping. Other things demand immediate attention so you don't miss a show like this.
It's good to remember to take the time to smell the roses ... or see the spiderwebs.

Oooh...I've been dreaming of getting pictures just like those but have yet to succeed. Fantastic photography. I'm so glad you took the time to enjoy the show.
