What is on this leaf?

Post by derwoodynck » May 5th, 2019, 8:41 am

Was looking at some photos from the Tamanous Trail and spotted this white thing on the leaf to the right. It almost looks like a moth outline but maybe that is just an illusion (or a moth ghost? :lol: ) Anyone able to tell me what I'm seeing here?

Well, my first thought is definitely a ghost.

After that, I'd say maybe a spider web.

I wondered about a spider, maybe an artistic one.
