I caught this Garden Spider on a number of photos during the molting process. This was the sharpest image I got from the shooting spree, and there's almost no sign that the molting process is about to begin. On another day, I'll upload an image that shows the spider around 90% into the process. At first I didn't realise what I had shot (thought it was a spider with long legs), only on examining the pictures later did I realise it was the molting process!
