I live in Linthicum and last October took a trip to France. Driving north along the Meuse River just before sunset, I spotted a pair of swans paddling across a golden pond and pulled off the road to take some photos. As the sun descended and light faded on the swans, the beauty of this patient spider became evident. From macro to micro, nature's magnificence surrounded me. A perfect moment.
