Spider Pearls II by LoneWolfPhotography Spider Pearls II by LoneWolfPhotography
On a recent trip to Jewell Wildlife Refuge, I was disappointed to find only a few visible Elk and so I busied myself with finding other subjects to shoot. We arrived at the Refuge fairly early in the morning, maybe an hour after sunrise. It was quite foggy and at this time of the year, morning dew always covers everything. In a small meadow of wild grasses at one of the viewing areas, I found tons of Orb spider webs everywhere I looked and they were all adorned with dew drops and lit beautifully by the low morning sunlight.

I'm not crazy about spiders, but I find them a fascinating subject for close photography and with the combination of morning sun and dazzling dew drops, I quickly got lost in finding the best ones I could.

I was mesmerized by the intricacy of the dew drop bejeweled webs I found and how well they showed up in the light of this early sun. They almost looked like they were spun with fishing line rather than the nearly invisible spider silk you usually see. :D
