Now what's this all about?

Now why is the dew on this plant all around the edges of the leaves? Very pretty - like a beaded edge. But what's it really all about?
Dave says it's the meniscus effect augmented by the boundary phenomenon. I know he just made all that stuff up instead of saying "I don't know".

Why is the spider upside-down? To get a head rush? Is this normal? Do they always do this?

Of all places to sit in the garage, why does Milo choose to sit in the sawdust under the table saw? Why?

Why am I so happy when I see this?

My mind is full of questions this morning.

Kathryn : )

Oh, my, Kathryn, why are you asking why??;) I ask myself why all the time...I guess the right thing to ask eventually is why not??:)

Christine said...

Ah, but is it the spider who is upside down or is it the rest of the universe?

Deborah said...

Beautiful photos, Kath! The Dave remark cracked me up.

Annz said...

Hahahahahahah Dave's comment and the cat are my favourite.

HI Kathryn,

What a beautiful Chickadee. I have started to buy my winter stash of suet for the birds that winter in my backyard here in Sparks Nevada. Great picture of the spider and it's web by the way. I wonder what would have happened if you had misted the web?
Take care
