Spinning Silk

This week, when challenged to publish a favorite photo, I leafed through my stunning sunrises and sunsets, my macro pics of springtime flowers and my pelicans and seagulls soaring and swooping into the breaking surf; I paused at this stunning shot of spider pearls, glistening in the morning fog. 

I am struck today, as I was on that Sheffield morning last summer, by the exquisite delicacy and incredibly intricate architecture of this miracle of nature.  We mortal humans strive to replicate, imitate, and recreate such perfection, but rarely succeed.  

Even this photograph, one of my all-time favorites, falls short of capturing the fleeting complexity of that magical moment, of delicate dewdrops clinging to the silken strands of web.
