If you don't like spiders or their webs now is not a good time to venture outside, particularly in the forest. Gossamer abounds, strung three to four feet above the ground between tall grasses and small trees where myriads of insects fly in the warm early autumn sun. The sun's rays catch the morning dew and make it sparkle.
A web in the garden
Fragile webs, so easily destroyed by unseeing animals, human and wild, blundering through them are nonetheless surprisingly strong, resisting heavy downpours of rain. The supple silk is weighed down until the nets resemble necklaces of precious jewels but as it dries it resumes its intended purpose of netting tasty small morsels for hungry arachnids.
Madam Spider in the forest waits at the top of her web in this young Scots pine or maybe she is too hungry and has started to weave another trap.
Another web, spiderless this time, suspended between the needles of a sapling.
