Hanging by a Thread

The weaver was long gone but the web remained.

Silent. Soft. Sticky, still.

The unsuspecting beetle walked right into it.

Tangled and stuck and no way loose.

Just one hind leg, kicking feebly.

Life holds unintended traps: Watch where you go.

    1. Thanks Pete … an awkward spot, tucked under the edge of our outdoor wood box. Staging it would have been easier but I wanted to capture the photo in place. Lots of out-of-focus images on this one. 🙂
