The Web

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 2 October 2012 in Miscellaneous.

I have two garden spiders near my deck that night after night create enormous webs. In the morning, they have gone to bed after a long night of work and then each night they are back at it again.

A good one Elaine, this web is quite large too. The light gives it a special effect! Very nice!!

@Carol: It took me a while to figure it out. The light had to be shining on the web just right. After many tries!
