Artist's Description

A Hover Fly in the center of a Spiderwort.
Image taken in a wooded area near my home in northeast Iowa. USA

Spiderworts can be compared to daylilies and dayflowers — each blossom lasts only one day. The common name refers to the many glistening hairs on the sepals and the buds. They resemble a spider’s nest of webs, especially when covered with dew (“wort” is an old English word for plant).

Description of spiderwort: Spiderworts are weak-stemmed plants that grow up to 1 foot long. They produce a watery juice and have folded, straplike leaves. The 3-petaled flowers, opening at dawn and fading by mid-afternoon, are surrounded by many buds.
