(Or…the Colorful Spider Web)
Spider webs over camera lens,
In sunlight toward rainbows bend…
Natural light into rainbows rend.
Camera lens with diamond glow.
Double imaged layers show…
On the lens,
As a ray is caught and slows.
As the sun sinks slowly down,
Spiders lose their multicolored gown…
Unlit webs disappear
As they are much of the year,
Waiting for prey found.
I have a spider that disappears during the day and returns every dusk like clockwork. On my balcony sliding frame. I have named Charlotte. Yes, not original but I like it.
I don’t have names for our spiders—too many of them!!! But really a pain when the web and/or prey blocks a good view from that CCTV camera!
