The Works of the Lord are Great ~ Critters

I have a fascination with little critters.  Their intricacies of design amaze me.

God’s handiwork is everywhere for those who will stop long enough to study.

As long as spiders keep their distance, they do have amazing designs!

As long as spiders keep their distance, they do have beauty in design.

The works of the Lord are great…

    I was unable to leave a comment, but wow – great up-close-and-personal photos! We have a spider link from the maple tree to the birch tree on the front lawn, about 30 feet apart. We can’t figure out if the spider took a flying leap from the maple, trailing the thread behind him; or if he slogged through the grass and lugged the webline up into the birch LOL. No matter how he accomplished it, it’s a mega feat!

    Blessings on a job well done!

    I have an intricate mature spider web on my deck that is occupied! He is incorporating two of the extra folded deck chairs with sprawling web and a cozy cylindrical web extending out under the deck rail. I don’t mind him as long as I know WHERE he is! God’s vast array of species is amazing. I enjoyed your colorful photos!

      Thanks. I agree about observing the beauty of a spider at a distance! Watching their web-making is amazing. God’s creation is awesome! Thanks for the feedback and for stopping by.

    We seem to have an abundance of spiders/webs this year, and none of them look as pretty as your photographs! They are so beautiful to look at, but I highly dislike walking into them when I don’t see them! Gorgeous pictures! 🙂
