    This was home to a small spider and I liked how it behaved in the light.

    Next to it was a bigger, less orderly one, with a much bigger inhabitant:

    And several things had got caught in the bigger spider's web:

    All things found this afternoon upon doing some work in the garden, and the last two say "autumn" to me ever so clearly.

    Now I should go out and finish the work I had started ... ! :D

    Nice ones Lafoto! I like 'em all, but especially the iridescent effect of the web in the first two shots.

    Thanks, Jeanne.
    That web was moving in the wind and constantly changing, so I had to be quick to capture it when it just was at its most colourful. You can see the movement - it is a bit blurred at the bottom. I did not have much light where I found it, tucked away behind our compost compound.

    Wow, I really like the light reflecting off the spider silk. That's definitely one picture I would probably frame and stick on my wall. Well done.

    nice rainbow colors in the web in the first 2 pics, and the luminescent effect on the leaf in the last one is really cool.

    Thanks to all! I am glad you like these. Yes, I was quite fascinated by the rainbow colours in that small spider's web and how it would forever change in the breeze.

    The color of the leaf in #3 is stunning, the season gives it an extra. I like it.

    WOW! I was also searching for a time for a spider net, but I couldn't find an optimal for photographing yet. You did a great job.

    How long did you seek for this one?
