By bunbeam
I had just one teazel plant in my garden, so I cut a few bits off to get the seeds to spread around my garden.. This one still had a spider on it, so I took a few one handed macro shots while gently holding the spikey stalk in the other hand.. I couldn`t resist adding SN in ps in v2..
Thanks for all the brilliant comments and all the clicks on my dalek shots, as always, very much appreciated xxxxxx

thats a terrific close up, handheld is amazing, the sharpness of those tiny thin legs is wonderful

That looks like SN had a close scrape, those giant spiders from Mars are known for their squirrel eating.
Cracking set of shots !

I like V1 the spider is nice and clear and looks good against the spikey underneath.

Cracking shots Bun, V.1 for me, nothing against SN mind you,
By the way you just might regret seeding the garden with Teazel,
nothing seems to happen for a year or so then BANG they are everywere,

These are so scary, they run so very fast and are difficult to catch, but you have photographed them to look so graceful

Great shots as usual, Bun, V1 for me. Within all the spikey bits of the teasel, the spider is still obvious. You reminded me of Jurassic Park where they fed animals to the dinosaurs, fancy throwing in a miniature SN !?
