[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
An early morning stroll through the meadows alongside the River Yonne brought me into this patch of rough grassland as the sun was breaking over the distant hill and streaming through the nearer trees. The field was full of spider's webs catching the rays of light as though that was their sole purpose. Of spiders, no sign otherwise, but I admit I didn't search too hard to see one - their work was sufficient attraction.

Cropped asymmetrically all round, adjusted levels, resized and sharpened on PSE.

Well, I like it Peter. I reckon it's an Araneus species as it has a hidey hole and a signal line. Great use of the light, and it's effect on the dewy web. Thanks for posting.

This is rather a nice 'large' spider's web. I tried a workshop. I hope you like it.
