What a tangled web we weave...

I was getting ready for work the other day and this web happened to catch my eye. It was just getting windy and I wanted to capture this fleeting piece of natural artwork before it vanished. A few of the strands of the web were already missing due to the wind.

There was no sign of the maker, but the workmanship (spider-ship?) was amazing - it's really incredible to me that spiders can create such intricate artwork. It used not only the plant hook, but also the hummingbird feeder for support.

The dew made it look like a jeweled piece of artwork.
