Wild animals are a great challenge to photograph. Always unpredictable with rich payoffs.

Ok, not exactly animals or wildlife, but made by them.

I took my daughter's dog out one morning and found that the local spiders have been busy.

I see you photographed the after effects of a day of crime fighting for Spiderman. :lol:

I find spider webs to be amazingly interesting. I also find I have trouble photographing them. They never come out looking as nice as these here. Great job. I particularly like the ones with the water drops. They look more like tangled necklaces than they do spider webs. Primo job in capturing these.

Thanks Duck.
Mostly, I got lucky. I did play with them a bit in PS to make them stand out, but I was lucky enough to catch them at the right time and under the right conditions. It was a cool morning with lots of dew/moisture.

Thanks Ernst.
Too bad that they didn't build their webs in places with more attractive backgrounds. :D
