      Diane, aka Tersha, posted this image, and another one, onto the Mobile Monday feed.

      When I saw them, I immediately wrote her message saying how these pictures transcend from merely nature shots into the world of fine art and deserve to be hanging on a gallery wall.

      It’s a spider’s nest. Pretty cool, huh?

      That is why I have chosen this photograph for the POTW.

      I encourage you to go here and look at the other one as well.

      Congratulations Diane. I learned something from your image. I had no idea that some spiders nest this way.

      That is amazing Diane, what a cool shot!  Hearty congrats on POTW.  I, too, had no idea that spiders nested and that so many could collect together.  Additionally, I did not know that there were spiders of that colour.  Now I must go and google them!

      Thanks for the comments Petr, Jasenka, Dave, Erik, Sarah, Lenny and Leanne, they are really appreciated. I’ve since found 2 more nests outside, there’s going to be a lot of spiders this autumn!
