Those that do not neccessarily know me that well, may not 'get' my so-called sense of humour... it may help (or perhaps not) if i told you that my alternate title was going to be something like 'going to need a bigger web'
anyhow, the near-domineering post length had to be left so that i could keep the spider and web, i hope you will find it perhaps slightly more interesting for the inclusion.
a relatively large aperture combined with 300mm allows the subject to be separated from the distant tree-line and -1 EC darkens out that already dark background but does not (in my opinion) darken out our Sparrowhawk too much.
not composed on the vertical thirds as i have a personal issue with too much 'headroom' in images - rule of thirds is fine as a guide
