Day 247 – 07/10/11 – Dew Web

When I returned from my run this morning I noticed a fine, dew covered spider web in the grass.  Not one to pass up an opportunity, I grabbed the camera and made a few images.

Dew drops in the early morning grass.

I discovered two things after making these images.

First, in a few of the images there was a tiny little lady bug.  I wish I’d noticed it when shooting, I’d have recomposed and gotten a really interesting shot.

Second, the webs that are holding this dew aren’t actually spider webs, they’re a web like growth that is part of a lawn disease called Dollar Spot.  So, that’s not particularly good.  But what’s bad news for the lawn is still good news for the macro imagery!

  1. Nicely done Jim. I took a similar shot for my 365 project – mine was much of a macro shot.
    Here is the link.
