Thistle Seed Caught on Grass


I could curse the dried up grass ... fire hazard.
I could curse the thistle seeds ... noxious weeds.
I could even curse the spider webs ... just plain eek.

The grass harbors the spider.
The spider's web catches the thistle seeds.
The thistle seeds catch the reflections of the morning sun.

Beauty unfolds unexpectedly.

  8. That is truly random nature at work, and you must have been looking very closely to catch it happening, and glistening in the sun...
