I took a lot of pictures of spider webs this year. The early morning dew and the rising sun give a sparkling radiance to a beauty we often overlook. The architecture of spider webs can range from simple to amazingly complex.
Number 9 in the 2014 countdown (as determined by our esteemed one-person panel) was taken in a bird sanctuary just east of Jackson, MI. Can you see the designer and creator of this web? The spider – by design – blends in well in the lower right of the web. I have included a magnified view of the artist behind #9 below.
