Spiders, you can easily miss them. Silvery strands appear first, looking not unlike utility wires in the sun. It’s architectural magic as energetic arachnids build a full web, anchored by spider versions of guywires. Stop and look the next time you are snagged by a web in your path. It’s getting cold at night, soon the spiders will be gone. (Photos by Stephen Ramaley)
