Some mornings I want to quickly feed the animals and stay in the house with my coffee until it's light and the fog has lifted. Other mornings I feel drawn to be out there a little longer while the dogs take their time out on the property. I usually don't take my camera outside unless there's a pretty sunrise. Yesterday, after the dogs went back into the yard and I let the donkeys out for the day, I went in to get my camera. Early morning can be very interesting if you pay attention.
In the mist, you can see these webs all around.
Here's a closer look.
Aren't these nice? So much work going on here during the night. So I was curious and of course Google'd Tarantula webs. We have Tarantulas here, they live in the ground, and they are nocturnal. These look very much like the Tarantula webs I found on the Internet. Apparently they build these either to protect their burrow from invaders and/or to use as a type of hammock above ground.
Fascinating how much activity is going on out on our property during the night! I'm going to look into this further but that's the best explanation I can come up with for now.
And what sort of beast left this out on the property????
Aha, I think I'm on to something.
