Spider Webs

I found these webs up on the hill last year, about February. There were about 20 of these particular spider(about 12" across), hung in the snowberry bush and old weed stems. All of them were strung with silver beads of dew. One is beautiful, twenty is dazzling.
There were other webs revealed by the dew, some small and round, about 4" across, some haphazard, attached to three points with a messy mesh. I could see how different kinds of spiders liked to build their webs in different places, or in different heights off the ground.
