thankyou so much for all the good votes .. and the comments ..
i wanted something like this for the challenge and fortunately it had been misty in the morning .. so its not archival .. and lucky for you guys its not an insect or a spider .. !!! ..
the spider's webs are all visible with the dew on them when you look at them from a distance in the paddock .. almost magical .... they are nearly invisible without the droplets on them .. it was pretty difficult to get the shots i wanted as the wind was blowing the webs around .. so i deleted most of them .. i did boost the saturation a heap on this image .. which made it very spring like .. as if there were flowers blooming under the web .. it was actually just dirt and leaves and stuff ..!!.. ;)

Always nice to see the little dew droplets on a spiderweb, like little pearls. Beautiful color and bokeh. Top 3

A terrific title for this startling and compelling image. You've taken us right onto the web, and I don't know whether to marvel at the surroundings or panic. The explosion of color makes it all the more stunning.
Personal second favorite of the challenge.
