Thursday Challenge: Tiny -

photograph by Mick Mather
As the title of today's post suggests, the theme at Thursday Challenge this week is tiny. While I was out and about last weekend, in the middle of a lifting fog, I discovered hundreds of spider webs coated with the passing mists. In particular, this image of a fir tree is my personal favorite and rife with examples of fog-induced droplets. The needles themselves each have a bead that's about the size of an opalescent pinhead and seem huge when compared to the tiny little pearl necklace strung along the spider web. Sweet!

Oh, this is really sweet! I like this very much, but can't analyze it better.

Are you sure it's water, not whisky (as you were drinking with Susu)!

Yes, I'm sure it was only mist ... after all, in keeping with the theme, Susu and I had just a tiny drink. :D

I can imagine being there. I like webs but not the spiders! Beautiful shot though and I am glad you didn't walk through it!

Sometimes tiny could be dangerous.

I'm pretty sure I've walked through a lot of others, Lisa. There are hundreds of webs in the field where Ive been building the "Kings Court Cube" and, without the benefit of the mist to see them, well, I'm certain that explains the creepy feeling on my neck, hair, etc ... probably the little eight-legged critters trying to get away.

LOL - as in a miniature world where each pine needle becomes a lance or a sword, Elegia? :)
