Webs

This morning there were several webs that were as finely woven as tarlatan.  The web architecture was astonishing. 
Two of the webs had small egg cases suspended from heavier threads.  A small spider was poised in the center of each web.
Nearby some scarlet and also purple runners are putting out pods.  Drawing with a white prisma pencil on maroon Canson mi tientes paper that I grabbed when I realized pen was not the way to go today.

  2. These are lovely. There's a wonderful TED Talk about spider silk if you are so inclined. It is amazing stuff.
