Seattle Spiderweb Walk


Why not join me for a Seattle spiderweb walk this foggy morning? Wear your Spiderman and Spiderwoman costumes if you want.


What a bounty of beautifully spun spider webs I came across on my stroll through the neighborhood.

One, two . . . I was soon joined by a Dad and daughter who counted at least fourteen webs in one bush alone.

Dad used the opportunity as a teachable moment for his daughter. Placing his fingertip at the bottom of the web, he demonstrated what happens when a spider feels an object yanking its web.

Let me tell you – it took all of a nanosecond for that spider to move towards its prey. Eeeeeek! Don’t worry. Neighborhood Dad took his finger away just in time, leaving the spider somewhat confused, I’m sure.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave . . .

 What did you see on your morning walk today, wanderboomers?

A perfect post with Halloween approaching. It reminds me of the beauty of these webs, something I often forget when I find them at home!

Lovely photos! I’ve never, ever seen spiderwebs that big. I do get some in London but they tend to be much smaller.

Yes, it’s been a bit daunting to go on my early morning walks this week, Nooraini. I never know when one of these spider webs is going to cross my path. But they are beautiful, especially when dotted with dew. Thanks for commenting ~

You and me both, Irene! I much prefer spiders in their natural habitat – which to me means outside the house :-).
