Wonders in Nature

    I have lots of rocks in the house and many many more edging the gardens in my backyard.

Most were picked for their shape, color and design.

This rock “bowl” holds water and attracts birds. It also reflects any nearby plants.

 Any water movement in this “bowl” reflects small objects, clouds, nearby plants,

and clouds in the sky.

A light wind moves the reflections of a nearby vine.

Spider Silk … in February

It’s warmed up now at the end of January, and I’m seeing increasing number of strands of spider silk. I see the most connecting the tall grasses in the field across the highway.

A breeze blows the strand of silk and

the reflected sunlight “slides” back and forth along any longer strands.

The spiders let out a length of silk. It grows longer and longer until it attaches to an object, like the wood above.

The silk really shows up in the evening light. Spiders can let out much longer strands than the one above.

These two were probably from the same spider. The light slides back and forth along the silk, and the sun reflects the light in different colors.
