Sparkling Dome of Light

Glowing Dome of Web
Glowing Dome of Web

Today as I walked through Fauntleroy Park I was treated by the morning sun setting this web aglow.  Never have I seen anything like this.  The spider who wove this is a Sierra Dome Spider.  In the next photos and video you can see her at the top center awaiting a meal.   Or is she looking for a mate?

The light on the web only lasted about 5 minutes but it was a sight to behold.  The light show was all a sparkle with blue and purple.  The jewelness of the web is so lovely as the light breezed moved it around in the sunshine.
