Itsy Bitsy Spiders

Little garden spiders are everywhere you look. Luckily I do not have a spider phobia, and can appreciate their little webs, which can be so beautiful. I have been walking through a few however unintentionally as I go about my gardening activities.
This little fellow situated himself right in front of a daylily. Smart little guy:).We watched as a rather large bug zoomed right through his web, leaving a large hole.
Even the older broken webs are interesting to observe sparkling in the light.

The webs are beautiful, especially when they're holding morning dew. The spiders? Not so much. ;)

I always think of them as utilitarian works of art.

we have a bunch of these little boogers working in our garden right now. Pretty much everywhere we turn there is another web with a little one perched in the middle.

Last year three of them survived the entire season and ended up looking like little Halloween decorations in the garden. They were quite the sight!

Love these photos. Funny thing, spiders don't bother me in the garden and I find them fascinating. In the house, the fear kicks in.

I love spiders webs particularly in the Autumn - in the early morning
Nice pictures

I like spiders IN the garden too. You've caught some nice photos of their webs.
