Our Readers Share: Steve Watson – A plethora of spiderwebs

Steve Watson writes, “The morning of Sept 9. Temperature 48° and Foggy. A plethora of spiderwebs adorning the barrier on the Wisconsin St. scenic overlook.

Ok you arachnologists.
Look what’s in this morning mist.
Webs aplenty shape and size.
Dew drops let us scrutinize.
Webs of death for little guys.
Spiders weave these deadly traps.
To catch a snack or lunch perhaps.
Webs are woven almost every day.
Shiny for attraction,
Not for interception.
To catch their prey.”

12 slots between posts.
About 5 webs in each slot for a total of 60 webs in this section alone.
Plus all the webs on the post tops.  At least three on this one side.
Many webs on the corner.
Spider waiting for the sun. 
Its web is about 2 ft. across.

Our thanks to Steve Watson for yet another fascinating nature photo compilation.
