Day 264

Day 264 - Bugged

I love the spiders that gather in the fall. Their webs are so intricate and delicate. We will watch the same spider for days on end, building and re-building their web.

And then, without warning they are gone.

I had a heck of a time lighting this guy. I wanted to catch some of his web so I bounced the flash slightly to camera left hoping to light the web and not over expose him.


  1. Eww,
    I don't usually mind spiders but this one is extra creepy. His body reminds me of a tick.
    On a side not, great details and lighting. Nicely done.

  2. Really great shot. Captured great detail of his body and the web.

  3. This is gorgeous! His body has such a beautiful design and I love that you captured the web!

  4. Awesome shot! the lighting looks perfect to me!
