Spiders Abacus

By Ajack
Taken yesterday morning,this spider was busy spinning her web without disturbing hardly any of the raindrops that still clung to it from the night before,But I think she was using the droplets as beads to add up how many victims she had caught,or she had heard that diamonds are a girls best friend and thought her luck was in,
Anyway after all that load of old guff I hope you like her ,Thank you for looking, any comments are welcome,

I like the angle of the spider, showing the "spinning mechanism", and the business of it. Super dof and lovely light on the droplets. Ingenious title, comical description.
