Sunday

Delicate but Strong

I found what I think is a web during one of our
excursions.   It looks delicate, but I know it is strong.
I "zoomed in" so the pic is not as sharp
but I think you can see it a bit better.
When I first saw this, I thought it was a "fuzzy" that had floated and was caught between these branches.
After I looked at it on the computer, I realized it was "attached" to the branches.
If this isn't a web perhaps it's a "casing" of some sort.
If you know what it is - 
please comment and let me know.
Nature amazes me daily!

Very pretty picture indeed but to me it looks like a silk web that has been there for a while but I'm not sure about these things.
Hope you are feeling better!

Sorry, no help. But very cool picture.

I was sitting here thinking it is Sunday, and we have nothing planned. I was thinking, what should I do today. Thanks to you, I just realized I need to get outside in the woods and take pictures!!! Now I am excited!

First things first - great pictures - especially NO. 2.

Second - No, I don't know for sure. I side with Michele and take it for an old web, but there are thousands of varieties of these, and not all of them look like what we think of as a "web".

Third - thank you for nice comment!

It's a great capture what ever it is. If it is not a web maybe an egg sack from something. Well noticed.

Whatever it is, good that you were out looking. I did the same today, and the quiet and wildlife did me good.

Neat Kerri

Me said...

No, I have no idea what it is... but it is a neat post just the same, and that is all I wanted to say! :)

I have to admit that I don't know what it is, but it still makes an excellent photo.

Mary said...

Webs always make me go for the camera. And, yes, there is a fine between feeling delicate and strong. I hope you are feeling better.

Alyssa said...

I think it's a web too. What an exceptional eye you have for the tiny things in life. I love visiting your blog to see what you've captured for us.

That's a cool photo. It looks like it is hanging on by a thread. I like the buds starting to come out on the tips of the branches. Happy New Year!

I would go for some sort of web or cocoon for a moth... but it sure is a great photo!

Sandy Carlson said...

The inherent symmetry of this apparently random scrap of web is fascinating. Beautiful shot. You have a keen eye.

gaz said...

i've missed some great shots over the last few weeks. i'll go with the remains of a coocoon of some sort.

Gardener Greg said...

Nice picture. I took some similar ones recently that I am waiting to develop.

Andrea said...

What an interesting find. I would think it was some type of web also.

Paulie said...

I have taken photos of "webs" after a rainy day tht were thick like that. Perhaps part of it got washed away in the rain?

Web-OJ said...

Wow! Superb pic.

Charity Childs Gevero said...
