[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This looks to be either a web or housing for an egg case of the Southern Black Widow Spider or Latrodectus mactans, taking clues from both the egg case's appearance and the habitat (it was living on a rotten tree). Many spider species' webs were practically overlapping on the tree, including that of a funnel weaver which was about a foot across. I took this in a hiking area called Sugar Hollow, which overlaps part of Shenandoah National Park.

It was a task as the f/2.8 was the last aperture opening and in such condition the depth was impossible but you had a steady hand over 1/5 sec shutter speed, I appreciate you effort and TFS.
