Everywhere I go I am seeing these beauties.
This one seemed to have fine webbing all over it.

Caught 8 tiny caterpillars munching on one of my leaves yesterday ...I was so angry I plucked off the leaf and binned it
Photo op missed entirely....Blush
Priorities I guess.....

A thorny but beautiful subject and one that I as a Scot find myself so at home with: they do seem to have proliferated this year particularly, Barbara.
Very nicely captured.

an image that invokes the very gentle and sufferable sadness of loss of hair.. (an honest response to the image)

At this time until October, that plant is covering all Romania, (from Carpathians to grain cultures and from dunes to the Danube Delta) It is considered the worst weed, but it has a wonderful flower as seen in your well done picture
