Bedazzled Fences

Let me first start out by saying I do not like spiders.
The fact is, spiders are way at the top of my list of things I do not like...
...however...
 

...I am totally enthralled and enchanted by the masterpieces they create.
 
 
I discovered these beauties last week,
right before I came upon that field of morning glories.
 
 
In fact, I debated titling this post "Another Kind of Morning Glories"...


...for the simple reason it was morning and the webs were glorious :)
 

They were draped all along these electric fences.

 
The heavy morning dew created the illusion of thousands of strands of tiny crystal beads...
 
 
...glistening in the nearly blinding early morning sun as it peeked up over the bales of hay.
 
 
I'm pretty sure I remember picking my chin up off the ground as I laid eyes on them.
 

 
It seems I'm drawn to the challenge of snapping spider webs whenever I come across them...


...but I wasn't actually looking for these...

 
...they pretty much found me :)
 
 
And of course I just have to share these bedazzled fences over at
 
Come on over and join the party!

  3. Charlotte where are you! They are beautiful---works of art. They look like they would make lovely, lacy shawls to wear on a warm autumn day. (sans spider of course).

  5. Amazing. Spiders are indeed nature's lace-makers. Just as long as they don't make it in my home :-)

  7. What incredible photos, my friend! The webs look like doilies :) And when you did the one in black and white - wow! The other day I captured a picture of a Cat Spider. They are so nasty yet so intriguing :) Maybe I will put it in a Sunday post one of these days.

    Enjoy your day, dear Debby. It's sooooo good to visit you. Hugs!

    The dew certainly added to the beauty of these intricate, God designed webs. Absolutely amazing.
    Did you see the lovely spiders that housed in these beauties? Hopefully for your sake, no.
    Thank you for sharing this wonderful find with us, Debby.
    Enjoy your weekend!
