    at first i thought the shimmering grass was a heat haze, but on further inspcetion the whole field had a covering of cobwebs, from top to bottom, anywhere the sun was reflecting there were the webs, has anybody seen this before ???? is it really cobwebs or is there another explanation, i find it incredible that a few spiders had the time to do this and the ajoining fields were like it too ????

    Yes normally I see this at this time of year, the last time was last winter early morning just as the sun was coming up and what eye candy it was, just amazing. Football pitches and golf courses that have the grass nice and short or the best I found.

    Yes quite normal and they also drape themselves over fern / bracken very nicely as well, especially if you catch a nice sunny, but misty sunrise.

    I believe it is termed "ballooning" and spiders (particularly spiderlings) use it as a mode of transport. They spin some silk to act as a sail and then let the wind take them off to pastures new.

    I've seen this quite a few times now on a nearby football field. In fact, I've seen it covered in morning dew and with the sun behind you and low in the sky you can get arcs of rainbow colours across the cobwebs making it look even more spectacular.
