Entry Description

This is a spiders web just as the night winter frost starts to freeze. The tiny balls of woven silk that may contain many hundreds of spiderlings hang from the nest almost like planets in a distant solar-system. The night time dew is freezing to form star-like crystals reflected in a distant street light.
