Moskitoes are doomed

What an unusual capture. It is amazing to see all these webs, timing in photography is so important and you nailed it here. Great shot

Yves Langlois

Sory to answer that late. We all know there are some webs. We see some during the day. But that many was a shock. Thanks for the comment Clifford.

Heather Mellon

What a cool find and capture Yves! The dew always brings out the best in spider webs that we often miss otherwise and you photographed them very well here. Contrary to Debra I'll take spiders over mosquitoes any day because I react so strongly to their bites. Aside from the mosquitoes, if there are any left now, this looks like a really beautiful place to get photos.

Thanks Heather. It is a new marsh I am discovering this summer. I like it because it allows for shooting birds, waterfowls, insects and flowers, scenery and landscape. And there is many photographers and bird watchers to talk with. It sure make a delightful 2 hours safary.

Debra Plett

The morning dew really does enhance the webs. The low angle picks the webs up nicely. I like how you have captured three layers of interest. Nice one Yves. Personally I will take mosquitoes over spiders.

Yves Langlois

Thanks Debra. Your artistic eye is doing great : I did not notice the 3 layers. Personally, I tried to explain to the spider that moskitoes are important and should not be eaten... with no success.

Harold Fleming

Those spiders certainly know where the eating is good, Yves.

Yves Langlois

Guess what, moskitoes surely avoid going to that little island.

Here is an astonishing maze of spider webs. The early morning dew shows them well in numbers. Moskitoes doesn't stand a chance. Taken at the Island of the marsh (Magog lake) in Ste-Catherine-de-Hatley.
