How Many Spiders?

Saturday, October 3rd 2015

Several days this week, driving around the corner near the heath, saw a spectacular display of dew covered webs!   The camera does not do it justice.

Most of the webs appeared empty, no doubt the spiders were resting, deep in the vegetation, after feeding during the night.  This one was walking across its web.

The 3D architecture of some of the webs was amazing to behold.

It was not only the Heather that was used but Angelica and seedheads of Knapweed

Juniper trees were also web coated.
