Flying Pine II (Solution)

Mange av dere er sikker kjent med at enkelte edderkopper benyttter seg av luft-transport når de vil forflytte seg over større avstander. De velger seg et høyt beliggende punkt,  og der pumper de ut en tynn silketråd som ofte kan være 4-5 meter lang. Når vinden tar tak i denne tråden, så henger edderkoppen på den andre enden! Og når den flyvende tråden tilslutt finner feste i en gren eller tretopp, så ‘klatrer edderkoppen i land’!

Antagelig er det noe slikt som har hendt her?  Men denne gang har tråden også fått med seg en furunål på reisen. Og så kom tilfeldigvis ‘fotografen’ forbi.  Her ser dere (med en mørk bakgrunn) tråden, men jeg tok altså et nytt bilde med en litt annen vinkling og hvor tråden forsvant mot den hvite skyen i bakgrunnen. (ISO 1600, f=10 og speed 1/1600 sek)
Jeg beklager at dette bildet ble litt tyngre enn vanlig, men jeg tror kanskje dere trenger litt flere pixler for at tråden skal bli synlig?
Many of you probably know that some spiders wanting to move over large distances use
‘air transport’? They select a point high up in at tree or bush and here they puch out a long thread of silk – often 4-5 yards long. When the winds take hold, the spider lets go and hang on for dear life until the thread at last catches a branch, twig or anything solid. Then the spider moves into his new hunting ground!

That’s probably what has happened here. But during the flight the thread has caught on to a set of pine needles as well. Then the ‘photographer came walking by . . . 🙂
Here – with a darker background you may see the thin silken thread. I did however, choose to shoot a piture at another angle hiding the thin thread against a background of a white cloud. (ISO 1600, f=10, shutterspeed 1/1600 sec. )
I’m sorry this picture became somewhat heavier than usual, but I think you need thos extra pixels to see this thin thread?

Please return me to INDEX for a new picture/destination.
