Nature’s Art

The web of the Araneus diadematus is often spotted in the later summer and into fall. They can be huge – this one spans from our porch to the flagpole, with an anchoring strand down to my car in the driveway. Fully 20+ feet! The photo has been filtered digitally to bring out the colors of the web.


nature’s art is unrivalled by any artist’s pen or brush.

  1. A huge web is indeed beautiful when dew laden and sparking in the morning’s golden light, but when I’m not paying enough attention to where I am walking and transform the web into wearable art, it then means a large amount of “shrieking like a little girl” on my part.
    For me, some art is best viewed from a distance!

    My mind added a sort of Victorian era postal service uniform to the drawing because, snail mail.
