[The Wisdom of a Distracted Mind] A Web of Ice...

In a rush... But, here are some picture of a frozen web I found on the back window of my Jeep earlier today. It's kind of neat.

Yeah... I don't think that spider is going to be catching anything other than frostbite.

  1. Dan, that is a fascinating shot. WTG, Bill

  2. Honestly, this has to be one of the coolest spider pics I have seen in a long time.  Typically, spiderwebs are not seen in the depths of winter, especially not in the frozen tundra.

  3. What a bizarre find. Have you not moved your Jeep since August?

  4. I never thought I would find creepy crawly spiders interesting, but this actually is.

    Great pics Dan!

  5. Unless he's gawn south for the winter I think that spider's gonna need his thermal socks.

  6. That is supercool, and some beautiful pictures. While I don't like spiders much, I've learned to live with them, since we have a place in the country. I also appreciate them for eating so many bugs. I just don't want them crawling on me.

    I read a statistic a while back that said that people swallow an average of a half a dozen or so spiders, during their lifetime, in their sleep. Think about're lying on your back, sleeping soundly, and your mouth falls open. A spider drops down from the ceiling, right into your mouth. Does it wake you up? Probably not. You swallow Spidey and you don't even know it. Yikes!


  7. That. Is. Beautiful.
