tempus fugit

By ceridwen

Not losing the thread

As I walked  along the path I peered deep into the surrounding foliage  and saw a spider in the middle of her web.  I tried to take a picture but failed to get the focus and then she started to revolve very fast, as spiders do to deceive the eye of a predator. Next she shot off the web and tried to hide in an oak leaf but I could  still see her,  attached to her thread  I assume she thought she was concealed...

I like the contrast betweeth the taut line of spider silk and the wavy edge of the oak leaf.
Small pleasures.
