I did a little research on line to try and figure out what these things are. And it looks like it may be from grass spiders which don't have sticky spider webs, but create webs that have a funnel like opening in the middle that draws their prey down into the hole. I didn't happen to see any spiders while laying in the wet morning grass, but now that I know what they are...I will be on the watch!
Morning grass spider webs weren't the only macro treat this morning because after I had finished downloading the photos of the webs, my husband came in and asked if I still had the macro out. Well of course! Hanging out just outside my office window was the cutest tree frog. He lives behind this metal art piece we have up on the wall by the front door and don't really get to see him out. But...there he was and he was great about not taking off while I got super close to him. I can only imagine that he thought the camera lens was a giant animal's eye staring him down! I could see his little throat moving in and out very quickly. I love the green in his skin as well.
