Morning dew on a spider web

I noticed one of the first hints of summer fading when I was out in West Bragg Creek this morning.  The night air has cooled noticeably over the past week and today the dew had coated the leaves, flowers and grasses across the countryside.  This spider web did not escape and I moved around so that the sun was lighting it up from behind.  The backlighting on the threads made it glow.  It looked like an elaborate, if somewhat haphazardly designed, piece from a weaver’s loom.  Summer should run on for another month and a half or so but this is one of those early signs that fall is somewhere over the horizon, not so very away.
