Photos: Busy Night for Spiders and Dew

This is a shrub eye-view of the spider web.
This is the bush from above.
I awoke today to a dew-covered morning and this view of the big shrub on my front lawn. The spiders did their work overnight, then the dew highlighted it.

These photos come with an apology to my good friend Anne Sampson, whose technique I borrow here (though I'd never shoot it as well as she would). In Anne's world, the closer the camera, the better the photo. I think the great WWII photographer Robert Capa said something to that effect.
Looks like spider web mountains.
If you were a bug, you'd see it this way.
And if you were color blind, it would appear thusly.
