Dew Drops in a Web
A foggy morning left the remains of overnight spider architecture profusely festooned with dew drops. The drops formed before the fog developed, but were enlarged to some extent by collision and coalescence with airborne cloud droplets in the fog. Such conditions highlight just how many spider webs there can be that we may not see under normal curcumstances, at least until we walk into them. I watched a couple of orb weavers devour what was left of their webs, as they often do in order to recycle the silk, but with the drops still clinging to the strands. It was hard to tell if they drank some of the water in the process or just went right through it.
