Behind the shot:
I took this image in Beale, Maine at a lobster fishing pier, as I was returning from a trip to Machias Seal Island where I was photographing nesting puffins. It was very early in the morning. The fishermen were getting their boats ready to go and I decided I would stop and just take a few shots. I came across this big pile of lobster traps and off to the side was this wonderful dew soaked spider web. It was such a gorgeous sight! I loved the graphic nature of it, while still being naturally beautiful. I was only able to take a few shots before the sun fully came up and started to dry up the web.
