Ghosts in the West Kootenai?



The other day we took a drive over to the West Kootenai. It was hotter than Hades and there wasn't much going on but on a short hike up into the trees we did find this apparition. Kinda of looks like either a ghost or and angel to me.



What it really was, was some very energetic spiders that had spun this web over some scrub brush literally creating their very own sculptured work of art. Truth is stranger than fiction and you really can't make this stuff up! The artistry in nature never ceases to amaze me.

More on the weather next time.

For those who may not know, the West Kootenai is located in northwest Montana. It is a local phrase used to refer to that part of the Kootenai National Forest which located on the west side of Lake Koocanusa

That is truly stunning Kinsey. Just beautiful and mysterious. I love it, especially against the green. As far as I'm concerned Nature is the most consistently creative artist going. She also produces the most dynamic art work. :) You won't find anything like it in any gallery on Earth! Wonderful.
