Just a spider web, among the palm fronds.

But what are the spiders?

"The spider has always suffered from a bad reputation. For most of us he is a heinous evil. It deserves a quick death under our soles or insecticide ... But when the we take the trouble to observe, this summary judgment fades to give way to admiration to the many talents of this eight-legged wonder.

Yet his talents as a weaver, the infinite variety of tricks for hunting, its incredible adaptability, and above all the extraordinary diversity that characterizes so this species, are an endless source of wonder. "

In Quote from "All about spiders, or almost"

And a bit of poetry:

The spider

"The strongest of all the acrobats
It is the spider!
She walked head down,
Clinging to its eight legs
With silk thread color rainbow sky
She stretched between two sheets. "

Albertine Deletaille

The poems of the school of Mollkirch


The phjotographie was taken in the morning on sunny days, amid a grove of palm trees. With a sensitivity equivalent to ISO-200 and a focal length of 15 millimeters, the opening was set at f/4.5, to account for lighting conditions and not having too much depth of field (with the objective good "isolate" the spider web). The rate was calculated to 1 / 210 th of a second.

cobwebs are wonderful to capture. there are numerous forms according to the species it makes. Most of the wonderful cobweb designs are found in grass lands and inside forest which can appear very large.

The light behind the cobweb is distracting. you must have captured in low light situation. any way i see only cobweb. thanks for sharing.
