The Perfect Web

I walked out from my house at 5PM to go pick up my daughter from her school and right in front of my car at the end of drive way I saw this spider web with sun shining on it from behind and illuminating it. I got in the car, turned on the engine and looked at it for a few seconds, I left camera at the house and I was late to pick up Katia from school. I thought that the sun will probably shine like this for another 20-30 minutes and I’ll have time to take some photos of it when we get back. I didn’t want to take a chance, so engine was off, I ran back into the house grabbed my camera a took about a dozen shots.

When we got back to the house, the sun was behind the trees and you could hardly see this web. I’m glad I decided to be a few minutes late. This is processed in CS5 with little HDR toning. Out of all photos that I took only couple had best sharpness and good illumination.

I’ll check it tomorrow and hopefully we’ll see the tenant as well.Click on it to open in my Photo Gallery

    1. it disappeared, we looked for it today around 8AM and the entire thing gone. no wind, it was nice night. very strange. maybe someone ate it.

      1. We once visited Antelope State Park in Salt Lake City – it was CRAZY there, spider webs were everywhere, on every possible bush, shining in the sun. Nadia was freaking out, and I was taking pictures :))) But i prefer spider webs without spiders. I don’t really enjoy pictures of insects. Unless they are cute (in rare instance).
