It was a blustery day and again the garden was filled with webs and spiders. This beauty was the easiest to get closest to, well not too close. Just as I clicked she shot down her web and then back to the centre - If you look closely you will see she has a morsel of food ... a few shots later between her and her web swinging backwards and forwards towards me in the wind, I managed to take this shot Grin

To each and everyone of your who left your much appreciated comments and votes, I say a heartfelt Thank You GrinGrinGrin

Natural History

The spider, dropping down from twig,
Unfolds a plan of her devising,
A thin premeditated rig
To use in rising.

And all that journey down through space,
In cool descent and loyal hearted,
She spins a ladder to the place
From where she started.

Thus I, gone forth as spiders do
In spider's web a truth discerning,
Attach one silken thread to you
For my returning.

Regards Nathan
