Spiders & Webs


I like spiders.

I'm sure that makes me an oddball to some of you,
but we have a terrible problem with mosquitoes here and anything that is trying to eat them is a-ok with me!

There was one spider I noticed the other evening - he was big and so was his web.

The sun was just beginning to set, so I rushed inside to get my camera.

Not to toot my own horn, but I am lovin' this bokeh!!
How about you?!


The next morning the same spider was in the same spot...almost.
He had taken down his giant web and built an even better one about a foot down from where it was the evening before.

I tried for so long to get the shimmery greens and pinks reflected in the web and after many blinding attempts, I finally got it!

And I tried even harder to get a decently focused shot of this spider.

It was worth all the time and trials!

  8. I think spider webs are awesome...I'm just concerned that I might have gotten bit by one the other day so I'm not a fan.
