Woodland wonders – Tiny leaves on a mighty oak


Back to the Woodland I’ve been featuring this week.. you can see the others here

What I am trying to portray in this series is a tranquil misty sort of mood and a rather splendid decaying-ness rather than crisp focus;  showing the last remnants of colour before the winter earth takes it away.

This is the 5th in the series


It amazes me how strong spider silk is, there was quite a stiff breeze blowing but the leaf hung on as it was being blown horizontally.


and this one? well I just love that the tiny leaves seem to be trying to hang on to a little colour.


If you’d like to you can read my other blog 1500 Saturdays here  where I write about what I’m thinking, talking about, photographing or doing on all the Saturdays I hope I’ll have left!

  1. I imagine the wind whipping that spider strand…thanks for writing about that detail. What a clever tool for snagging a meal, and what interesting stuff to find abandoned in the woods! (I prefer it to the stuff we leave around in landfills and other places.)

    • Oh yes it is very clever isn’t it..It amazes me how spiders can judge the wind and send out a silk thread dozens of times longer than themselves to be caught on another object so they can secure passage on their own high wire..rather brilliant.
