Heavy morning dew revealed what is usually hidden: pearl-strung strands of webbing hanging between stalks of grass. The webs come in all sizes, some no bigger than a bottle cap, others stretching a foot and a half. Most of them have a small, pale jewel in the center, the spider, that drops down like a cannonball into the sheltering grass below when we walk by. Each web is nearly perfect. As we walk the path, we shudder at the destruction our bumbling feet may be causing to webs too small and too obscured for us to see.
By noon, the spiders have packed up their webs to wait out the heat and light. Night provides for the best hunting.
