At this time of the year, the morning after a night of dense fog is a good time to go in search of spiders’ webs laden with dew. Droplets of moisture collect on the silken threads, each one forming a perfect sphere. Larger drops are created where the threads meet, whilst diminutive spheres space themselves at regular intervals along the thinner strands. Each glistens like an orb in a dance hall. Collectively they resemble a hugely expensive necklace – Nature’s jewels. Yes, there is an initial WOW! moment, but stay a little longer – really look and see. It may well be an awe-inspiring experience.
