Instant Halloween!

This morning when I went out the front door to walk across the street to our mailbox, I noticed that our neighborhood was shrouded in fog.  We have a pear tree in the yard, and on my way back home I noticed that it was shrouded in spider webs, made more visible by the fog-deposited water droplets.

Eerie, but beautiful!  I am afraid of spiders, but I do have to admire their artistry in constructing their webs.

How many webs can you spot in this picture?  The entire tree is covered in webs!  One enterprising spider even strung his web between the tree and the edge of the house, which is a pretty long distance.
