Frosted web. What do you catch with that?

Spider usually stop attempting to build webs in the winter. Unless it's warm enough and they think they make a chance to catch something. The guess might be wrong.

They are from ivy.
Ivy - Lierre commun des bois - Hedera helix.

I saw several beautiful frosted webs on TN. I attempted to do the same but always ended up with a distracting background (too close to the web to be blurred enough by using less F). I was happy to find that one as I thought that in that case the background is a plus.

süper! Fantastic shot. A really very nice macro!


Nice find and a perfect spiders web across a leaf just thought that a little level adjustment to darken the leaf would contrast better well spotted tfs rgds Necip.

You might catch cold! ha ha : ) I don't know if that translates into French as a joke. It is kind of a bad joke anyway! It is an interesting shot JeanMarie. Nature's patterns are so wonderful. Good eye..

Bonjour JeanMarie,
Very interesting this presentation!
I never see a frost web here, so it looks like so attractive for me, the way the web structure is covered by the ice and spot on with the light reflections.
Well done, thanks for share and best regards,

Hi JeanMarie;great shot,beatiful frame,fantastic,I liked....

Bonjour Jean-Marie,
Alors vous avez fait une virée en France... Vraiment sympa cette feuille bordée de sucre glace ;-) La petite toile perlée de givre est super aussi. Il est vrai que l'araignée aura du mal à capturer un proie ainsi.
Bien vu et bien fait !

Hi JeanMarie.
What an artistic well done picture. Excellent reproduction of snow web. I like your composition, exposure and contrast. My compliments and TFS.

Sorry, I have no time. I have just returned from short business trip and hasten for work.

Hi JeanMarie

This is a splendid capture!
I always wanted to get one of these but never got the luck of finding one :)
Anyway, your photo is excellent and your positioning when taking this is also great, allowing all this direct light to make the ice-crystal glow :)
Very nice sharpness, very good DOF and a charming composition.
Very well done!

Bravo and TFS

Bonjour Jean Marie,
Beaucoup de chance d'avoir trouvé ce soleil givré. Bonne présentation avec un choix judicieux du format en hauteur. Juste une petite remarque: l'utilisation du rouge pétant juste en-dessous de ton image si fine, lui nuit un peu.
Meilleures salutations

Hi JeanMarie,
perfect winter photo!

Hello Jean Marie,
This is a very nice and interesting composition! I like the DOF and POV.
On the other maybe a little better saturation would be nice :)
Anyway, very original picture.
Best greetings,

I like this frozen web with the pattern of the leafe behind it, I find it original and eye catching.
Good shapness and lighting.
Regards, and TFS.
