Spiders in Autumn

Back in August I realised that autumn was on its way. It soon became more widely unofficial with snow falling in the mountains in the south and the weather reporters talking about its arrival.

Misty, moist mornings aren't unique to autumn, but they are quite typical. Since this has been a year especially abundant in spiders, these mornings display webs particularly well - these pictures are from three days ago.

Apart from the traditional spider web shape, there are plenty of densely knitted webs.

They provide a framework across summer flowers.

Whilst autumn flowers are just starting.

There were so many on the lawn next door that it looked as though there had been a frost.
