Golden Silk Spiders are consummate web builders. Their webs have a roundish or “orb” shaped center like a fishnet, and since the silk is bright yellow they are very visible. Here in Florida, a single banana spider can place a web across a 12 foot wide trail overnight. The bright yellow web, is usually about 6 – 9 feet above the ground (just in the face of horse and rider) and normally has an area from 8 to 36 square feet.
This web was huge as was the spider and I loved the way the sun was backlighting the intricacy of the web itself which to my eyes was a piece of art. via Tumblr http://bit.ly/1l8ykrW
May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.

These tiny little mushrooms were well hidden in a small hollow. Most wouldn’t have seen them as they were almost hidden. I love this example of nature’s recycling. via Tumblr http://ift.tt/1OfAj6U
