Fly Fishing


Early morning rain drops in a spiders web

It might be a way of catching lunch for the spider, but it is a thing of beauty.

Fly fishing 1-1

Home sweet  spider home, how many strands of web and how long to spin I wonder?

Fly fishing 2-1

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. An absolutely stunning photograph, and clever title, as well. I love it. I hate spiders for the most part, though.

  2. Gorgeous shots. The more you look the more shapes and designs you see with water and webs! Fantastic!

  3. The spider – and you – created nice artistic work. Funny: I captured some shots of raindrops in Danish spiders web some days ago on my holiday by Jutland’s West-coast. They are still “hiding” on my SD card – I must check them soon 😉

  4. These are beautiful, and surprising, too. We’ve seen the misty spiderweb patches during our walks, but I’ve never gotten down to inspect them closely. The Cowboy did, snuffling along and coming up with his muzzle thoroughly covered. No camera, but I know you have the required imagination.

  5. gorgeous pictures! you have reminded me of the need to stop and look properly instead of dashing around.

  6. I find spider’s webs fascinating and wonderful to look at, especially when they’re like this! xx
