My grandson loves these big web weaving spiders. Much to his fathers dismay. Often found in the September, they commonly are lumped together with their cousins as garden spiders. Usually shy, this one stayed on web for a pose, content to finish its evening meal. The pic has been sent to my grandson…I’m waiting to hear his delight…its bigger than the one he’s been raising outside his window all summer!

Mornings Are For Trails

This weeks Photo Challenge is to capture what our morning looks like. I wish it would be every morning, for my favorite mornings are spent on the trail welcoming a new day. Each day gives a new offering begging for you to come back again to be treated to a new delight.

A sample of recent  summer Mornings:

 

 

Macro Monday – Menace in the Jewels

Menacing Jewels

The wicked have set a snare for me , but I do not wander from your precepts. Psalm 119.110

You’ll want click on the image to see the danger hidden Below. Last week I was mostly tech free and posted using the scheduler. While away, I spoke as camp pastor to middle school campers in Central NY. A life long favorite activity of mine is to take adventure hikes with kids and see what can be found. A gal spotted these overnight rain drops captured in a web down in a rotting stump. I saw images in the drops and offered to take a macro shot and see what was there to see on the screen  for the evening chapel. We never saw a spider in that old stump, the web looks abandoned, but when opening up the image we see the reflection of a menacing spider lurking below the dew jewels. How deceiving beauty can be..
