Not the best shot I've seen lately, but interesting to me from a couple of aspects. I got this shot fairly early this morning as I went out to load my gear into the truck. I saw my spider friend in his (her??) usual location, and just couldn't resist the temptation to get a few shots. My flash batteries went flat before I could take more than 2 or 3 shots, but this one came out OK. One of the two interesting things to me about it is the way that s/he appears to be knitting together the center of the web. I've never seen this in person before. Maybe I'm just looking at this wrong, but that looks like what is happening at the moment of the shot. The second thing is the dark background. I did use flash, and I was pretty close, but I never expected this effect. It was early, but it really was broad daylight. I think it looks cool. Enuf rambling. Here's the pic. Taken with the D2H and my new Tamron 180 macro lens (thanks again Crystall ;-)).
