  1. “Conscience”, huh? An arachnid morality tale in progress here. 🙂 I like this. These photos look like brain neuron pathways. I follow Energising Minds blog on WP: This is a really dramatic series.

    • I just followed the link to the Energising Mind Blog. What an interesting blog! I can’t wait to look more into it. Thanks for the link!

        I saw a Facebook page today called “Expanded Consciousness”. Really interesting. A photo of a colored slide of a mouse’s brain sliver compared to a one-dimension simulated photo of the universe. Both looked like your spider web. All natural phenomena share the same basic characteristics. Fascinating stuff. 🙂

        • Wow, the Facebook post sounds fascinating! It is so interesting, as you say, the characteristics that natural phenomena share. Microcosms can be discovered in all sorts of unexpected places.

  2. Your last few posts are like a trip through a distant cosmos. In this one, I really like the looming shape in the background – it adds real drama to the image. I really like this series!

    • Hi, Pam. I think it has a very other-worldly feel to it, too, and what I find so wonderful and fascinating about spiders is that their world seems so out of this world, and yet there is something very, very natural about it at the same time.

  4. Another cosmic galaxy like image. Beautiful.
    Since saw your photo I’ve been paying attentions though, I never found a spider web
    having such thick filament —– ? ? ?
    Isn’t American spider eating Mac’ and getting obesity ?

    • Ha ha ha! My spider is loading up on Big Macs!! That’s such a funny image to me! Yes, there is something very thick about this web; that’s what drew me to it last year (of course it wasn’t the same web then, but the same type and style). It’s exceptionally sturdy in bad weather, too. There is another tiny little spider living “one floor down” in the clematis. Maybe he’s taking notes. 😉

  5. It’s beginning to look like a distant nebula, far off in a forgotten corner of the universe.

  6. Looks “other-worldly”. Nice.

  13. I like it a lot, Melanie…and I agree with those above…it looks like so many things…I do rather enjoy your title, though. I think that’s the most compelling notion of them all. Very well done. 🙂
