Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #113: A Labor of Love

I called my husband out onto the porch of our new house one evening this week to see this amazing creation: a spider had built a stunning web in between a post and a bush. And he was posing beautifully right in the middle of his work of art.

It may not be exactly what we would normally think of as a labor of love, but I appreciated his efforts, which seemed to me both practical and beautiful.

    That is both terrifying and beautiful. I’m not a huge fan of spiders, but their art is so breathtaking. I mean, what other animal makes art to capture their food?

    Amazingly beautiful 🙂 It’s like the spider is guarding it as well 🙂

    You’re right Mei-Mei, the webs of spiders are amazing labors of love. Here in South Carolina we have a huge version we call a banana spider. They make gigantic webs in the fall, which are fortunately in the woods for the most part. They are fascinating but I’m a bit unnerved by their size and avoid them as much as possible ! Excellent choice for the challenge
