    Heading out one morning to get some early morning shots I instead found a number of dew-laden webs along a bridge over the Moose River in the Adirondacks of northern New York State. The sun had just broke over the trees leaving the background in shadow but backlighting the dew drops leaving them looking like small light bulbs.

    Your Shot photographer Marc Henauer commented "If nature sometimes offers grandiose shows by its incredible landscapes, it also knows how to create amazing little jewels. The spider's web is already an artwork, but when it is covered with dew, it becomes an assembly of necklaces of sparkling pearls. Macro photography reveals its precision and beauty."
