The spaces between the frames for them to hide in was good thinking.

{I have been very busy with our Peregrine duties lately and it will continue for a few more weeks til about a dozen baby Pefas have safely fledged. Meeting the DEC person in the morning when she tries to drop down to the scaffolding below the bridge to return a rescued baby who fell to the river below yesterday! :eek:

You and your photos have been sorely missed by me. I hope the pefas fledge and there is no more fall out.

There is something almost magical about webs laden with dew. I'm not afforded the luxury of being able to walk in woods early morning any more. I miss those walks. The webs at the site remonded me of those early morning walks. I'm glad others enjoyed them.

Sage, I'd like to hear all about your Peregrine Falcon duties after all the babies have fledged.

havalotta, have you had any takers for your hi-rise condos?

I'll go look again.......................Nope. It's baking nicely in the sun. Maybe I should move it to a shadier bushier area?

Try a more protected location and see what happens. Couldn't hurt.

His head was probably still swirling from all the rain we just had. There were a lot of them in the woods that looked like that here too.
I bet the wind and rain twirled them into the cottony looking messes like they are.

See my attempts at webs. Early morning dew dresses them up.
