A Short-Lived Tangled Web

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 28 October 2020 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

A very large spider web that was spun right by our back door. To bring out the detail in the web, I used an atomizer to soak it with water drops. Unfortunately, I sprayed too much water and the spider web fell apart after only one photo was taken. To make the web stand out, a black rug was held behind the spider web.

Photo captured September 12, 2020.

It often occurs to me that spider webs are much softer and less dangerous than those on the web. Nice capture Steven

Beauté éphémère, magnifique. Très beaux détails.
Comment as-tu réussi ça ?...

28 Oct 2020 5:31pm

@tataray: J'ai utilisé un atomiseur pour le tremper avec des gouttes d'eau. Malheureusement, j'ai pulvérisé trop d'eau et la toile d'araignée s'est effondrée après qu'une seule photo ait été prise. Pour faire ressortir la toile, un tapis noir était placé derrière la toile d'araignée.

Excellent "network". Good shot!

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

Perfect shot for this week. At one time I would lightly spray a web with white paint then press a black poster board into it. It made a really cool "print" of the web, and didn't harm the spider. He would just make a new web in the same spot the next day.

This is gorgeous! It is almost a perfect web! I love seeing the garden spiders spin their webs this time of year. It is so interesting to watch.
