Master of design

Take a close look at this amazing piece of architecture. The entire web is only about 10 inches in diameter. I never saw the spider that created it but-it was there somewhere, because it repaired the web after I accidentally touched it with my camera lens.

The design as a whole, connecting the BBQ pit to a nearby chair.Look at the precise lines that make up the sides of the web.

The center is more complicated. It ends in a round whole surrounded by thicker lines of web. I feel really bad about accidentally touching the web. I wrecked about a fourth of it with my camera lens. The next morning though, it was repaired. Good as new!

such amazing photos. I am always in awe how they can repair it so carefully. I'm not so good if the knitting getting disturbed and I have to find my way around dropped stitches!

I marvel at natures' architects. Spider webs wow! Especially with dew drops on them, little crystal cathedrals.

WOW! I did not see your blog until after I posted and we posted the same!!! I have a web also. I havent seen the spider either.

My husband actually took the web down because its right where we get into the tub--and the next day it was rebuilt.
