Does the Spider Mind? - There is some magic between webs and water. What is collected and what passes through determined by an instant in time when conditions were just right. Add sunlight and the trap becomes delight for the right eyes.

Beautiful remains - A lone wooden fence post in the middle of the meadow acts as hunting perch and dinner table for the raptors in the area. Watching the frost melt into the clearest sparkling water as the sun hit, then drifting off as mist made me appreciate just how many moments of exquisite beauty happen all the time.

Hanging Decorations and Setting a Feast - As a former professional tree-climber working in a large city, I have a fondness for the Chinese Pistache. With such spectacular foliage and beautiful clusters of fruit, they have a firm place in urban landscaping.

Evidence of Past Industry - Many spiders consume their web when repairing, or moving it. The proteins it contains are recycled into new web. Many webs we see are "cobwebs" and no longer in use. "Spider web" refers to webs still in use.

It's a matter of perspective - In the noise of human concerns, it's easy to lose touch with the other non-human and plant persons we share our home with. When they too are noticed and respected, we all flourish.
