Time For New Web

Early morning and this spider's web is dew covered. This web will be of little use for catching insects. Too visible. Soon the spider will be creating a new orb web.

Did a check at my favorite reference source -- the internet. It takes a spider on average about an hour to make an orb web. Looking at the construction, it seems quite complicated to create the outside anchors. Then at some point the radii strands are created. Finally, the spider goes round and round creating the orb. The only part of a spider web construction that I have witnessed was the creation of the orb pattern. 

As I edit through the thousands of photos stored on the hard drive, I've found some to share with my readers. These photos will be posted when there is nothing else to write about.
