New on 500px : Come into my parlor said the spider by JoeyCulver1 by JoeyCulver1

Golden Silk (Banana) spiders are the largest non tarantula spiders in North America and are harmless and non aggressive.
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

The flower is about the size of a small coin and the little butterflies were the tiniest I’ve ever seen. Truly a miracle of nature.

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

“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity, and some scarce see Nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, Nature is Imagination itself.”
