What the drizzle revealed

The morning of March 8th was drizzly, and the idea popped into my head that I might be able to go back to the site in Great Hills Park where I worked the previous day and get some pictures of white prickly poppy leaves, this time with raindrops on them. I did take a few photographs along those lines, but I quickly became more intrigued by the dozens of spiderwebs that the drizzle had temporarily made visible. Predominantly horizontal and close to the ground, those webs had presumably been laid out by funnel web spiders; I made that inference because sometimes I could clearly see the funnel near an edge of the web, though none is visible in this case.
