Morning Dew Spider Web

As I go down our basement stairs to the dog kennel I can see out a window to the front garden. Yesterday morning was a foggy, dewy morning and don't I see a semi-circle of what initially appears to be a clump of loose dog hair. Hummm ... a lot to be dog hair and it's quite a ways from the kennel area. Once outside I have a closer look, and nope it's a spider web! It was one of the most awesome ones I've seen. Not at all the usual kind you see in the octagon form. In the middle was a tiny spider, with a bit of yellow on it. The main web seemed to only be held to the adjacent plants by about 5 strands. I moved what leaves I could without disturbing the form to get this picture.

Just had to share one of mother nature's creations. Don't see it this morn.

Very unusual spider web for sure -- it looks like crocheted lace. This is the first year that I've noticed spider webs on my plants all over the garden. I'm used to them being up high, not on ground level. I wonder if that has anything to do with the weather or if I suddenly have a new kind of spider in my garden.

I certainly thought so too! My camera won't focus in on the tinie weeni spider that had made the web; one kind I've never seen before.
