Wordless Wednesday Linky Party: A New Infatuation

This is Wordless Wednesday. Yee Haw!!

Just to be VERY clear here... I'm NOT exactly infatuated by the spiders themselves so much as their beautiful work of art. Not one alike. Isn't it amazing?

Capturing it takes the perfect moment, which can be a little tricky. Here are the few I've managed to get. Thanks to my neighbor for preserving a couple and allowing me to drag my camera over.

Now I want you all to think of cute Charlotte from Charlotte's Web as you scroll your mouse down the page. OK?

  5. Sheesh woman, you are totally on the ball today. Look at you, with your WW post up early. I feel so behind. I'll have mine up in a few hours. lol
    As for the photos, I love the third one and the last one. Total perfection! I too am fascinated by the beauty of spider webs. They are artists, indeed.

  6. Ummm, ewwww! Those are pretty great pics though. I need to get my spidy pics up one day.

  7. I am not a spider fan, but as you know my son is a huge fan of them. So I too have been noticing how amazing their webs are and how many different types there are. Funny how when your kids have a love for things like this you take time to really look and try to understand what the appeal is and when you do that it is nice to find something beautiful about things like spiders LOL. BTW your shots are amazing, I don't have a good enough lens to get the kind of shots you do. I am going to have to ask for a new lens for Christmas LOL!

  8. I love the 'web' pics, but they just NEVER seem to work out for me... Oh well, more patience and practice is need I suppose!

    Mine is up as well at AussiePomm (Spring Walk), have a great WW!!

  9. Spiders are fascinating little creatures. I always feel like I've won the jackpot if the web I photograph comes out well and in-focus. :) Great shots!

    ReplyDelete
  10. These are amazing shots! I never knew a thing about photography until I started blogging in May (still don't know much, but learning!) Now, I walk around just looking at objects differently...you can find such beauty in the smallest thing...like this web and how appropriate with Halloween just around the corner! I linked up some shots from the NC Mountains! Thanks! I am your newest follower! Christie at Three Pixie Lane

  15. For some reason, I'm not seeing the linky so here's my link. I'll check back again a little later.

    As for the photos. I tried to think happy spider thoughts but it didn't go so well. I think web #4 would be more like me: more than a little messy. =)

  17. I cannot believe the closeup of that spider. I hate spiders but think they are so facinating and the webs they make are works of art! Beautifully captured as always!

    ReplyDelete

  27. Great photos but I don't think I'll be asking you for them anytime soon, ;)

    ReplyDelete
  28. ok you know that I love your blog but this is one post that I quickly scrolled through and barely glanced at it. I usually don't mind spiders but when it's this up close and personal, it gives me the heebie jeebies!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Cool pictures, although the spiders still make my skin crawl a little just looking at them!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Okay....yes, their artwork is amazing...but ewwwww! :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I absolutely love spiders...not crawling on me or even near me, but they are facinating creatures for sure. I love the webs..amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Wow! Not a spider fan, but the photos are just lovely.

    ReplyDelete

  40. My son loves spiders, I'm going to have to show him these photos. I, on the other hand, not the biggest fan of spiders. Still, love the photos though, thanks for hosting!

    ReplyDelete
  41. EWwwwww I hate spiders but they do weave a tangled web

    ReplyDelete
  42. Amazing photos. I would love to have a camera that could do this. Maybe one day. www.jamarahcraftycreations.blogspot.com Sarah

  43. Love the close up of that spider.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Even though spiders creep me out, those are still some really cool pictures. Spider webs are definitely works of art.

    Thanks for the linky! Have a great day!

    ReplyDelete
  45. These are both beautiful and disgusting. that is amazing how you capture both emotions!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I can hardly bring myself to use "cute" and "spider" in the same sentence BUT these pictures almost make it seem possible! Nice!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Wow! I hate spiders, but these pictures are really beautiful! You are very talented!!!

    NICOLE

    AWESOME PICTURES! YOU ARE VERY CREATIVE & AWESOME WITH THE CAMERA! :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. You did great! I've tried to capture a couple webs, but they are never that clear. Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Beautiful shots, but seriously gave me the willies. Spiders are NOT my friends. Even if they do talk and try to save cute pink pigs!

    ReplyDelete
  51. ok, that is SO not Charlotte. I DO understand your fascination with their webs, though. Beautiful :) (kinda) LOL

    ReplyDelete
  52. Ok, how brave are you??? I do love spider webs but I'm terrified of the things that make 'em!!! Great shots. Maybe if they talked to me with Julia Robert's voice I might like them more.

    Lots of yummy love,

  54. Great pictures but now I'm totally creeped out!

    ReplyDelete
  55. The web is magnificent! Spiders really creep me out due to their jumping abilities but I can see the beauty in these shots!

    ReplyDelete
  56. That is some great pictures! You captured that beautifully! What lens did you use?

    ReplyDelete
  57. Don't know when spiders and webs have looks so amazing! Beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I agree! I am not a fan of spiders AT ALL, but they do amazing work. I think my all time favorite spider web scene is when the dew is dripping from the web. I think it is beautiful and brings out the best detail. Garden spiders don't actually bother me but that cacoon thing they do....disgusting!!! We had one outside our patio door in our walk out basement and I wanted to puke every time I saw it!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Oh, wow, Alicia! So very neat! Loving these shots!

    ReplyDelete
  60. wow
    those are really great shots!!!

    ReplyDelete
  61. These are really beautiful photos. And I love Charlotte.

    Please don't post any snakes though. I can't handle them.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Great shots! Spiders are quite fascinating. Thank you for the linky too!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Wow, cool pictures, but totally freaky! Really beautiful and creepy all at the same time! I really hate spiders but in picture form, they are okay!! These make me want to try and get up close and personal to get some shots like these!!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Spiders are the one thing that totally creep me out...but you sure made them look artistic with your amazing shots! :)

  65. I actually got some great spider pictures last week too! I just need to upload them and post to my blog. I absolutely HATE spiders, but love to photograph them. They are cool for that purpose!

    ReplyDelete
  66. All I can say is WOW!! You put spiders in a whole new light for me today :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. Stopping by From Aspire to follow! Great photos! http://www.ordinaryinspirations.blogspot.com Love, Traci

  68. Pure talent!! These are amazing.

    Today, I am participating in my first Wordless Wednesday, but my shots are taken with a crummy phone. Doh!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Ok, I was a tad bit scared to open this entry with the spiders but it wasn't bad at all! I don't do well around creepie crawlies. LOL Great photo!!

    Happy WW!

    ReplyDelete
  70. This was just absolutely fun! I could not believe someone else did spiders today, too!!!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Thanks for linking me up! :) and I love your web and spider shots. I have taken quite a few of them myself. :) such fun!

    ReplyDelete
  72. The first spider and web picture is such a perfect shot. There is something about spiders that I find truly fascinating...

    ReplyDelete
  73. These are such awesome shots!! Granted, the giant egg sack is kind of icky, but the beauty and art of the rest of them make up for the little gag I did. LOL Super pictures as always!! :o)

    ReplyDelete
  74. This year we are being over run by spiders, so I'm not overly thrilled by this close up look! But how can one not marvel at such ingenuity? Your photos are absolutely excellent.

    Kudos!

    ReplyDelete
  75. What cool shots! Is that an egg sack? Amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  76. That first one looks the spider we found just off our back porch, and I'm sorry, but there was nothing Charlotte's Web about the others. Haha.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Really great photos! But they give me the creepy crawlies just a bit! :)

    ReplyDelete
  78. Ehh, I hate spiders! Yuck! But those pictures are amazing! I love how you captured the spider web.

    I am new to your blog and following you. I would love if you stopped by my blog and followed me.
