The reflection of the web just caught my eye as I passed a bush in my backyard today. Upon inspection, there was a village in the making.

Momma was a fraction of the size of a pencil eraser. I couldn't even tell she was there until I looked thru the lens.

Interestingly, when she got it home, she wrapped it tightly in some freshly woven web material. I have pics, but need to work them. They aren't that great, but to see what she did was amazing, so I'll finish & add them later.

Funny thing.... I only "thought" macro DoF was challenging on stills. Add some action & stills become comapritively easy. LOL!

So here's what happened when she got the meal back to "homebase".

From the view of a totally uneducated observer:

1) Back to the center
