These photos were taken on July 1, at 6:45
The location was in the back yard of my home in
The "Take It!" came while taking newspapers to the
outside recycling bin after a big rainstorm had passed through and left the afternoon sun shining in full cloudless sky. Having carefully walked down the steps from the deck,
noticed the sun shining on this small planter at the base of the side of the stairs. There were some rain drops still on the leaves of the plants that had that look of being on
a waxed surface. It was so unexpected, that I quickly put down the bag of newspapers, and went inside for my camera.
The resulting photos were a lucky catch.
Even more lucky was my dropping my face down to
focus in close, and putting it directly into a spider web - lol. The amazing part of this was, in realizing what was happening, I was able to immediately stop my forward motion
and slowly back away with the hope of extracting myself from the web. To my great fortune - the back away - worked, and I was spared that awful and weird game of trying to wipe off a
spider web from my face.
I included a photo of the spider web - and hope
you can see it.
Life is ever so good.
