A very large spider web stretched across this opening looking out onto a rice field pond.

A couple of what I think are Black and Yellow Garden Spiders can be seen, along with several dragonflies that met their end in the web.

There’s more detail of the catch if you want to zoom in on the spider wrapping his prey.

Further along the dike another large spider had set up shop. I took the photo because I liked the leaf. When I processed the image I was amazed at the number of little items that had been snagged.
