    They are beautiful, but I hate the feeling of walking through one.

      You are right. I love seeing them when the sun hits them and they sparkle just a bit. But I walk through too many of them at night when we are out walking the dogs… I do NOT like that at all!!! 🙂

    so beautiful from far… We had a lot of webs this summer and I walked into a few!

    • Susi October 24, 2012 at 7:13 am

      Hilary, I walk through one almost daily. They are everywhere here and at night you can’t see them. So yeah, I know what you mean. YUCK, is right!!!! 🙂

    We have a very large spider on our patio that has a huge web. Hubs has knocked it down a couple times while working out there, but the giant spider is always back at work stringing up that huge web.

      Hallie, I know that they just keep rebuilding their webs. The ones we have around the neighborhood get humongous.

    I love spiderwebs. They remind me of the tropical jungles in the Philippines. When I was younger, we used to try and catch the biggest spider we could find and have them fight on a stick. The first spider to fall off the stick loses. We kept our “prize” spiders in matchboxes. Ah….childhood memories…. Of course, we had to know which spiders were poisonous or not, you know? But in all my childhood, I’ve never heard of anyone getting bit (or even dying) by a spider. 🙂

    Around here though, I’m scared of spiders. I can kill them easily enough, but I just don’t know if they’re poisonous or not. I guess that’s why I’m a little scared. There are black widows in my part of the state. I’m always concerned that one of my kids will get bit one of these days…

      We get brown recluse spiders here. My MIL was bitten a few years ago and needed surgery for it. Scares me too.

    Ok – beautiful pictures but spider webs give me the heebie jeebies. Just like snakes.

      Kiran, me too. I just couldn’t resist taking a few shots. 🙂

    such delicate beauty — yet they are so so strong. what a great capture!

      Thank you my friend. I was happy with the way these came out. It took some trial and error!

  • Jessica October 25, 2012 at 12:58 pm

    Very cool pictures!

    Looks like you are figuring out your new camera.

    • Susi October 25, 2012 at 7:01 pm

      Thanks, Jessica. Yes, I’m having a lot of fun with it!!! 🙂

    GORGEOUS pics of webs! I love spider webs, and have wanted to photograph them forever. It’s either always too dark or un-photographable. These are awesome!!

    • Susi October 25, 2012 at 7:00 pm

      I have had a hard time photographing spiderwebs as well. This seemed to be the right time the way the sun hit it. My new camera may have helped too!!!! 🙂

    Very cool shots. I got a camera last year and am still on Auto! I’ve got to figure it out….

    • Susi October 27, 2012 at 11:13 pm

      Thanks, Carolyn. I’ve been playing with all the different settings and am having so much fun. i think, it really helped me that I had a micro 4/3 before this one. Made the switch easier somehow. Good luck on figuring out your camera… just go for it. It’s fun!!! 🙂
