Mrs. Spider is IN

We went to Connecticut today for the annual July Birthdays party.   The number of us born in July in this family is amazing.  In addition to our mom and dad, now gone, my sister Betsey, and our daughter Amy, my niece Kelsey, and I are all born in July.  So we have one party to celebrate all the birthdays.
While sitting on the back deck at Joan's house, I saw the sun glinting off something over by the hedges.  I went to investigate, and saw this beautiful spider web. As I got closer, I could see that Mrs. Spider was in fact home.  At one point when I was photographing, she sped to the bottom edge of the web for some reason, and then raced back to the center.  I could not believe how fast she moved.

One of my favorite things to watch closely is a spider building a web. The webs are always perfect. You captured the web really well. It is a great photo. Enjoy.
