SPIDER WEB AND SCARECROW

The Haunting of Coupeville continues as I discovered on my morning walk today. Some of the “haunting” is natural while others are man made as you’ll see.

It was even foggier and darker this morning than yesterday but once again I made the best of it and had a nice walk.

The spiders seem to be really busy building webs to catch food for their winter stores. This one with the autumn leaves really caught my eye.

This spider was lying in wait for the next tasty meal.

Another new scarecrow showed up this morning. It’s presented by the Coupeville Elementary School, Second Grade, nicely done kids.

I grew up in a small Nebraska town where most homes had nice big front porches. This home, especially with the fall colors, really reminds me of those times.

The Halloween decorations are going up all around Coupeville and this gentleman, I forgot his name, was helping the Coupeville Historic Waterfront Association group put up hay bails, pumpkins and corn stalks. They are all along Front Street, nicely done group.

As usual, thanks for walking with me, I really enjoy your company!

SPIDER WEBS AND MORE

Over the past couple of weeks it has been cloudy and rainy during my morning walks. This morning the sky was clear but we had some fog. This combination made the spider webs really “pop” as they were covered with dew.

But first, here’s the sunrise in the tule fog.

And here are some the spider webs. There were thousands and thousands of them.

They say that when spiders build lots of webs in the fall it means a cold winter. I hop they are wrong.

I believe this spider missed the part of the class where they taught them to fill in the center.

I couldn’t resist taking this snails picture in the morning sunlight. He sure did have a pretty shell. Of course it could have been a “she” as well.

I typically don’t take “art” photos, mostly I’m a landscape/nature/historical shutterbug. I did make a small attempt at some “art” this morning. I hope you enjoy it, or not. After all “art” is in the eye of the onlooker.

This is a house on a hill, in the fog, with the morning sun reflecting off the windows.

I thought these power lines and birds made a nice geometric photo.

And lastly “Dewdrop and Barbed Wire”, enjoy.
