Just a few more, one of which you may already have seen, the other a view of a ground web in the woods lit by a shaft of sunlight. I wish I had a decent video camera with me. One side of the web was unattached and the whole thing was undulating slowly in the breeze. Very ethereal & beautiful.

Nice web. A video would've been cool...but your description helps.

Is that sneezeweed, Helenium? Mine doesn't bloom until fall--but I think yours may be a different species.

Yes, I believe it's Purple-Headed Sneezeweed (Helenium flexuosum).

Thanks. I'll look into that one.

So far I only have Helenium autumnale.

I like your web very much.
If you back up a bit, it reminds me of an otter laying on its back, feet up in the air like they do.

Not to be morbid or anything but it reminds me of a shroud. Very ethereal indeed!

Not morbid at all. It fits the scene well as the woods were quite dark and still on a bright windy day, with one shaft of sunlight highlighting the only thing moving besides me. You can see why it got my attention.

Of course, I can also see hava's otter. Ain't imagination wonderful?

Ok, trying again, my little hummer with it's shiny necklace of orange seashells.

You should be proud of your photo...and your unique "seashell" analogy.
