I saw this drop of dew, dangling from an invisible thread of spiders silk, hanging from a blade of grass, growing out of our pond.
Too small to describe by any measurement I’m aware of, I could only witness it’s dance through the macro lens on my iPhone. It appeared still to the naked eye.
In Rob Dunn’s book “Never Home Alone” he writes about how when he was a student he went to Costa Rica to study the insects there. Now he studies the insects in his own home and finds them just as undiscovered and remarkable.
I don’t know why I’m fascinated by the dew drop hanging from a spiders silk. It’s more than just the beauty of it. It makes me wonder what its purpose is. How it contributes to the ecosystem it inhabits.
It reminds me of the interconnectedness of the universe I inhabit.
