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.
Cheers,
Barbara Smile

Technique has worked well and a fine crisp capture for one handed, Barbara.
