Rainbow Spiderweb


One lazy Fall day, I happened to catch this extraordinary rainbow glistening in the evening sun's rays. Imagine that--such colorful beauty in a spiderweb! Since this is October, it seems somehow appropriate.

Lovely web... opaque, awesome!

I would say that weather is very much cyclical. You can walk through weather history and see patterns. No worries.

Lovely,.... and also the rain glistening on the web shows us how intricate it is. Such a effort a spider makes to weave a web!

Hi Beth. I think you should name your spider Iris (the Greek goddess personified as a rainbow).

Um, a..., eh...Oh... I'm not a real fan of spiders but this rainbow web is winding its way around my heart. Nice capture of this early Halloween web. Blessings to you and yours. Love and Light, Nina P

Cool shot. He missed out on something. He should have written on it "Spiderman was here!" :-) Nice shot!

Oh, that is beautiful.

I happened upon some webs last year on a bridge. They were like lungs. The wind would push and then relax and the webs would breathe. I held my breath while I watched.
