Foggy Revelations

I love foggy mornings.  I see things in the fog that I otherwise would miss.  Spiderwebs, for example. 

These little architectural wonders festoon the dried stalks of weeds and grasses and only come to light in the fog. 

They are captivating with their various designs, each one a food web crafted with utmost attention to detail.  I particularly like and marvel at the tent-shaped, hanging basket webs. 

Curiously, though, I've never seen a spider in one of these tent webs.  They must lurk below in the weeds and strike at the first wiggle of the net.  In fact, as I was photographing one of these webs, a moth did fly out from below, but missed being captured.  Still no spider, though. 

And this shot?  Just a pretty Morning Glory along the garden fence against a rusty post!
