Cobweb in the rain

Yesterday I mentioned about the slippery soil, in the rain.

Well, one side-benefit of rainy days is that one sometimes finds cobwebs like this one, bejewelled with sparkling diamond-like rain drops.
Such innocent discoveries are always a joy.

Yesterday, we had some serious rain, 35mm, not just drizzle.

We got 44 mm yesterday so either there were two systems working over Aus. or else the one was very wide-spread.

Hello Denis,

yes, one of the many simple pleasures of drizzling rain - sparkling webs ! I love them. Fungi have also been one of the fabulous advantages of the recent rain, even in my own town yard.

It's very appropriate every now and then to draw attention of the 'little' things in nature that so many take for granted. Lovely photo, thank you.

I love it when our forest is full of these glistening webs. Not so good to walk in, but looks great.

Hi Mick, Le Loup and Gaye.
Obviously you are all close observers of Nature.
It is indeed the "small things" such as cobwebs glistening with dew or rain, and fungi thriving in the moisture, which make the bush experience beautiful.
Thanks everyone.

I absolutely agree with you about the joys of these discoveries!
Lovely photo.

Denis Wilson said...

Thanks Black Crow.
Glad you like the "Little Things" too.

It has been amazing lately - it has rained every day! I accidentally squashed a snail tonight - I stopped seeing them during the long dry. The drops look like a necklace.

Thanks Catmint.
"Like a necklace" is a perfect description.
Sorry about you stepping on a snail in the dark.
