AMAZING!

You may well ask “Why is this amazing?”

It is amazing because for the last 10 years, I have been cycling along this trail once a fortnight and have never witnessed this phenomenon. Hundreds of cone shaped spider webs on a patch of low lying reeds on the shoreline. The trees on the top left of the photograph are mangroves and on the other side is Moreton Bay, Queensland, Australia.

In it’s own right, this trail between Cleveland and Redland Bay is a very pretty ride where, one minute you can be riding in a forest and the next, alongside water lapping the foreshore.

This morning however, riding conditions were very different, the area was enveloped in heavy fog making riding a slow process. It is quite unusual for the area to experience fog that alone heavy fog and it got me thinking whether this change in weather triggered the phenomenon shown in the photograph. If anybody out there can set me straight, I would be pleased to hear from you.

My mind went into heavy overdrive due to the fact that I have been riding this route for over ten years and in all that time there could have been a colony of living things with hundred of inhabitants going about their business less than a metre away and I was totally unaware of it, “how deaf we hear, how blind we see”. That is what I found to be so amazing!

Be aware of and remain inspired by nature.
