Grass Spiders

I have to start watching my step when I walk the pups, as the fall always brings back these little red spiders who live in my grass and build the most intricate, delicate webs imaginable.

The only time I can photograph them is first thing in the morning, because their webs are so fine you really can't see them without a glittery coating of dew.

The spiders themselves are about as big as a freckle. I didn't know they had black eyes until I blew up one of my pics 300% and finally saw them.
