Named for the color of its silk, this Golden Silk Orb-weaver’s web was in just the right light to see why.
A close up of the web, so interesting that the strands towards the center of the web (left) are spaced in a even grid-type pattern, and towards the outer edge the circular bands are closer together.

Spider webs are great photography subjects. Maybe you can also try it when here is fog.
Oh, fog would be very nice addition to a photograph!
I’ve never seen a Golden Silk spider web, it is so different then what I am used to. Great captures Ellen.
The sheer size, often 3 or more feet (at least a meter), across of their webs is pretty impressive, always hard to get the whole thing in a good light. And the strands are very strong–if you happen to walk into one you know it!
Thanks, so glad that you liked them.
