April Showers – Day 1

April 1, 2009

“The first of April is the day we remember what we are the other 364 days of the year.”
Mark Twain

Chers Amis,

Jennifer at S/V Mari Hal-O-Jen is graciously hosting a month-long photo challenge to bloggers everywhere. The goal to capture the world around you and to post a picture everyday in April. You are free to pick a theme, topic, or style – or not! Maybe you want to let the moment or light lead you. If you are interested in participating, just pop over to Jennifer’s vessel and leave your addy in a comment. I am going to try my best to keep up. I would like to try some new techniques, but we shall see.

Here is Day1. I found these tiny spiderlings no bigger than a pinhead, just emerging from their mother’s egg sack and as I moved closer to get a better view, my sleeve brushed their web slightly. Startled, they released tiny silken cords and rappelled down, down, down until the wind caught them and carried them to safety. I couldn’t help but think of Charlotte’s children,

“The air was now so full of balloonists that the barn cellar looked almost as though a mist had gathered. Balloons by the dozens were rising, circling, and drifting away through the door sailing off on the gentle wind. Cries of “Goodbye, good-bye, good-bye!” came weakly to Wilbur’s ears.” – Charlotte’s Web

    As soon as I saw the spiderlings I knew Theresa would get a kick out of them! Great photo of such tiny little ones.
