Evening light gilds a spider and its web.
The spider’s touch, how exquisitely fine!
Feels at each thread, and lives along the line.
Alexander Pope, An Essay on Man, I (1733), l.217
All that glisters is not gold,
Often have you heard that told.
William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice, II.vii
wonderful and actually sort of scary!
Thanks, Helen. Never fear – the spider was About the size of a garden ant.
I thought as much 😉
beautiful shot, I guess growing up in Vietnam makes me not afraid of spider. I’m used to gigantic spider that as big as my hand.
Eek! Not sure I would like that! This one was tiny, just about 5mm long. Thanks for your kind comment.
