The Kolden Report: Nothing but webs (and one tiny cowboy) August 2nd, 2012

Hi, kids!
 A warm welcome goes out to you new subscribers!  I hope you "enjoy the ride".  Feel free to share the Kolden Report as you wish. 
Now, on to the report!
Driving to work  recently, I was STUNNED.  We'd had a bit of rain and droplets were clinging to everything.
A veritable HIGHWAY of spider silk was visible in the foliage.
Orb weaver's neat web.  (Could this be kin to my Charlotte?)
Billowy web.
Concentric circles.
Poor housekeeper?
Neat as a pin.
The "neighborhood".
Under construction.
Handyman's dream?
Unusual design.
WHOLE lotta weaving going on!
"X" marks the spot.
I had to watch every step.  Between the silk "highways" and the multitude of webs, I couldn't help but wonder if we destroy their work, their homes, their livelihood -  every time we walk in the tall grass? 
Webs, webs....everywhere!
Tidy center, ragged edges.
Itty, bitty.
Tidy trio.
Love the shadowy color here.
Beginner's web?
I LOVE this tiny cowboy!   Bet he sleeps with as much of his gear as his Mamma will allow.
Energy and persistence conquer all things.
Benjamin Franklin
