Early Morning in the Hollow


There are a lot of beautiful things that you can miss by 'sleeping in'. One of them is this beautiful sunrise reflecting on the clouds. Of course there is always an abundance of wildlife. But, I wonder how often you might notice spiders. I heard once that there are over 11,000 spiders in an acre. This next picture makes a believer out of me.

Those little, white fluffy things are actually spider webs covered with morning dew. Just imagine how many spiders are out there! I wonder how many insects they trapped overnight. Just one more reminder that we are not alone! Enjoy your day!

You are so right! We do miss a lot of the beauty that God has provided by sleeping in.
Can't say I love the spiders but I love the photo. They do serve a great need by eating those bugs and I do like them best when they are outside.
Thanks for sharing
