Web of the Cross orbweaver spider (Araneus diadematus)
You know what Suzi, nothing mankind invented can
match the pure scintillating beauty that is nature!
I love this!!
So glad. Yes, Jim, I couldn't have said it better - I am open to seeing that beauty and perfection every day. I am in almost constant awe and, at my age, am so very grateful for yet having excellent visual acuity.
On a lighter note, I generally shy away from using the camera's flash, but I decided last night to see how the spider's web would look illuminated. Interesting results - needs more thought but possibilities are endless :O)

Thank you, esseil my lively friend! I'm happy that you like this image - I enjoy doing macro most of all. This time of year, there are many spider webs to find if one looks. Thanks for your visit :O)
Thank you, Mike! The webs and the, at times, heavy fog here makes for great opportunities :O)
I'm just viewing it again Suzi - it has been in my gallery of favourites for quite a time :))
Just back from London. How are you doing?
Thanks very much, Billy, and I like your shot - it's unusual, asymmetrical - thanks for the link! I've had lots of fun imaging webs and dew - click my Spiders and Webs tag sometime :O)
Thank you for your visit, jopoloco, and for the gift of a star! I'll be visiting your gallery soon :O)
Hello, Amelia, I'm back :O) I remember your writing to me about this one just before you went on vacation.
We spent our first night in the new house last night - it's official, and wonderful! We are both very sore and very tired, but so happy, and we'll bounce back in no time - thanks for asking :O)
Happy new home to you both! So after you've put everything in its place and soaked in a nice hot bath - things should be back to normal ;-)
So very much better than normal, dear Amelia! I must try to sleep now. Hugs and soon :O)
Hi there Suz - this is jewellery fit for a Fairy Queen - no manmade jewellery can equal it!!
