There was actually a single filament of spider's web stretching out from the tip of the blade of grass which the LB could only just resolve; it's visible in the colour original but the b&w conversion and re-sizing for upload have obliterated all but a tiny remnant of dew which appears as a single squiggle. As several votes have been cast I'm leaving it there Smile
I shall not be posting the colour version as I like the austerity of the mono.

That really is excellent Bill even though it is is taken with that contraption.....SorryBill I tried to give this my user award but as I have already given one this week the site will not allow me. Can you ask Moira to give it hers and I will pay her back as soon as I am allowed.
I feel this may well gain one or two awards today especially from the black and white purists.#

Thank you Danny for the great compliment.
As you know, I drive the car and Moira looks after the exchequer. I don't think I have enough copper in my piggy-bank to bribe her with . . .

Well I can only just see the tiny filament up large, and then only because you mentioned it, so it's no distraction at all.
A most excellently minimalist image.

PS - thanks for your vote and comment on the mouse. I know you don't like animals (but I seem to be in my wildlife phase), so I regard them with great pleasure! Smile
