Given my fascination with spiders, it stands to reason that when I see the word intricate, spider webs are pretty much the first thing that leaps to my mind. And given the large number of spiders and spider webs that I've photographed over the years, I definitely didn't lack for images to illustrate Sandi's choice of Photo Hunt theme for this week. Rather, the question was whether I had any that could also fit Gattina's water theme at the same time.
rooting through my photo archive, I found two candidates: one taken one
wet day of a spider web covered with rain drops (but so strongly woven
as to still be standing!); and another of a spider and -- more visible
if you click to enlarge on the photo -- parts of the web it was weaving
over the surface of a body of a water.
Ironically, however, the spider webs in those two photos that have water in them along with spiders and their webs happen to have some of the least intricate spider webs I've seen in them! So, for comparison, I've put a photo of a spider and its truly intricate spider web right at the top of this blog post -- and yes, I'm hoping there are no arachnophobes among my fellow Photo Hunters or, at least, those who elected to check out my entry this week! ;b
