Eeek 2

By BarbaraR
Hi all,
Here's a bit of a scary macro shot.
(perhaps twice life size)
Apologies to the arachnophobes here !
A fine Garden Spider.
Quite pleased with the detail as I had to carefully hold a black
card behind her web and take the shot one handed.
She had her web from my washing line to my shed eave.
Also just uploaded (not for voting) her underside which has
interesting detail I think.
Thanks very much for the nice comments and clicks for the
skeletal leaf/branch design upload.

she is beautiful, Barbara, and very well captured. I was photographing the self-same arachnid species a couple of hours back, hope they are as good as yours Smile Carol
