View From My Porch

Story of the ImageDoes this look to you like the view through a telescope pointing toward the heavens? The scene certainly does resemble some distant celestial phenomenon. But the camera lens is actually pointing in the opposite direction—at the floorboards of my front porch, where I captured sections of a tiny abandoned web filled with droplets of water and dust. I then made a composite image to stitch the sections together. And what about the spikey element in lower left? It’s a milkweed seed that landed at the right place at the right time.
