Just after noon in the bright Tucson sun it is a surprise to find droplets of water covering the spider webs - finding the first one is an accident, but after that the sandy wash bank just off the Hope Camp Trail in the Rincon Mountains seems to be covered by webs, spiders hunting from their dark centers.
