A very interesting image Brian, so much going on! Love the macro work - you can see the hairs on what is left of the 'legs' at the bottom of the clamp! Great work! John Grin

I like the sense of suspended animation. They are like skeletal workers on a building site, forever trying to hoist that load of bricks up...

Quote: Going to put it under Still Life........... all the spiders are dead.

Love that! Many other languages follow the French term for Still Life, nature morte - dead nature. So you're dead right. So to speak...
My favourite writer on photography, Michael Freeman, also came up with the expression Guerrilla Still Life for this sort of take.

@ Allex and Lillian. I think the clue to the content may have been in the title of the image...... you should have given it a miss.

Perhaps I will contact the team and see if they can install an ' arachniphobic warning' Smile

Thanks for your observations Moira - I nearly titled it ' The Spider Factory ' because I too thought it looked like they were doing things.

Thanks for info too - I'm not familiar with Michael Freeman - I will look him up.

Shed people are always sweeping away hundreds of similar little carcasses. I have to say, I prefer them this way indoors. Outdoors, they can run around as much as they like. Smile

Love the clarity of the shot and the colour. Top work.
