Oh, What a Tangled Web We Weave

Photos from a foggy morning walk along the berm between Niles Pond and Brace Cove this morning.

  • Magnificent photos.Growing up I always called it Braces’s Cove, (I’M sure a Gloucester colloquialism). An ecosystem I never embraced. Thx for sharing the flora and fauna.

    • Thank you Genie. I’ve heard Brace Cove equally as much as Brace’s Cove. I never tire of walking there and always find something exquisite to photograph.

    • Thanks so much Mary. I wasn’t planning to photograph because I thought the light was too flat. The minute I walked out onto the berm I was sorry i didn’t have my camera and ran back to the car to get it. The spider webs are there all the time and the dew and low light made them really pop.

  • Great Vision capture during your walk – Kim and a very reflective moment here for sure glad you shared it with us…On the spider web side – I thought about this watching them myself and this is how I felt:

    “I have learned allot watching the spider in his web. Like how a spider acts after catching a bug – it wraps its meal up – stays by it as to be thankful for the offering meal…Then the spider repairs its web, for this maintains the balance in the circle-of-life, of his family, home & web, vital to survival.” (Dave Moore)

    Thanks Dave & Kim :-)
