Spider web

IMG_6621c

On Sunday afternoon, I escaped the city to the second growth forest of Lynn Headquarters Regional Park. Since the trails were quite busy, I meandered a small distance into the trail-less forest. I didn’t have to go very far before the dense vegetation, the distant rush of Lynn Creek and the chatter of birds separated me from the hikers, runners and dogs. Winding through the trees, I tried to avoid the almost invisible spider webs. Around 5PM, I saw three webs glowing between the thin branches of a bush. Cool! I’ve tried to photograph spider webs before with no luck. But this time – yes! – the delicate threads appeared on my camera’s LCD screen.

    1. Thank you :-). Spider webs are cool subjects. I liked the lovely web in your painting of a flower which you posted earlier this month. Is the flower a broadleaf arrowhead? I don’t know it… I just googled bog flowers :-). I did see some yellow skunk cabbage flowers in the little bogs by the trail yesterday.

      1. Did you? Aren’t they fun? They are red here. The plant you are asking about is broadleaf arrowhead. It can be a little confusing in that spot, with 2 or 3 very similar species packed into a small area. The flower stalks all rise up from a mass of interspersed leaves, and it can be tricky to see who’s who but in this case the plant was off by itself.

        1. Oo, I like your description of the interspersed leaves and flowers :-). The big, light green leaves of skunk cabbage are very eye-catching when they glow in filtered sunlight on an otherwise darker toned forest floor. I’ve only seen the yellow ones. I now know of two other colours. And maybe there are more…
