Spider Web in the Yard

I spied this cool spider web the other day while taking some bird shots. This thing was over six feet long! I thought the way it was made was pretty nice so had to take some shots of it.

I like the bokeh effect in the background of this shot and the spider web. You can tell a little about the size from this shot.

Here is a closer version with the bokeh effect in the background. Isn't the web cool?

This one is a close up of a part of the web. It's not the best shot in the world but I like how the sun is reflecting off the web.

Here is another close up. This is of the center of the web. I like all the lines.

It's amazing how one little spider can do so much work so quickly. I hope y'all liked the spider web photos. Have a great day!

Spider webs are amazing. One spider had a big web up on Sunday, by Monday, that one was gone and another in a slightly different place and a third on Tuesday. I assume it was the same spider, each time, a common garden cross spider.

Neat! Spiders are wonderful creatures. I have one living behind the door mirror of my car. Every morning when I come out there is a new web spun from the mirror to the door frame!

These are beautiful images. I only hope to figure out how to get more than one to upload.

They are definitely great workers.

Yeah, we can't keep them away here. We are under and around a lot of trees here.

I will see if I can make a tutorial of sorts with pictures/screen shots for you, Carolyn. I will tag you if I do it.

Thank you very much.

Atleast this spider will be happy that you have recognised its art which is normally removed with a broom at the same time looking around for the spider who is the cause of it. :)

I left it alone. Not sure if my husband knocked it down when he was mowing or not.

We have a ritual so to say every fortnight to get rid of cobwebs that build up all over the place :)

Ants are always considered to be such diligent workers, but I don't think spiders are far behind. A six foot web?!?

I'm glad I'm seeing this on my computer screen and not in real life. Yes, I'm a great big scaredy-cat!

You'd have been safe. I never saw the spider at all.

i used to watch one of these orb spiders building such a web many long years ago. I ran from the eves of our family room across the yard to a tree. That spider worked on the web every night. I got a few photos of the web, but it was over 20 years ago and the camera wasn't digital, so everything has to be scanned. The photos also lost some of their quality since then.

This one was attached to our house and the tree as well. I didn't see the spider making it though.
