this is beautiful, so filigran. Must be difficult to keep them from destruction.

Oh, the delicacy! Tiny tracery under the 'skin' - you can almsot see where each cell was.

So many textures and patterns with subtle variations. This is a wonderful shot!

Wow. That is so cool. Beautiful find.

Hi Antonia and welcome! Yes these are very delicate, yet they survive the winter all over the garden, which I find really amazing.
Thanks everyone, for sharing my pleasure in this.

Can't you just imagine a dress or textile designer taking inspiration from this for some sort of embroidered tulle confection? Such an interesting image.

Anna, indeed yes, I can imagine that! In fact, now that you mention it, I can think of one fibre artist...
