O.K. I love this spider... As you can tell from previous posts I have done of Jimmy, (the spiders name, yes it has a name...) he is a good model! I love going out to my front yard and taking shots of him and his family! I think that he would be proud of himself if he saw this shot!

Mark,
Neat perspective and nice effect with the water droplets on the web. Assume it was morning dew or a rain shower? Cannot make out the detail on the spider itself. I cruised through your flickr file and see about three different spiders. Give me a clue which one is Jimmy.

Jim

PS - I really liked the eagle pictures with the fish in its claws.

Comparing those two photos, Jimmy has been a busy boy looking at the size of the web he has now. Spiders make such great subjects and are really misunderstood. I don't have many available here in Las Vegas but when I at my house in Missouri we have a varied collection of characters. Can't say I have given any names as yet. Thanks for the post and the contact.

This one is from today:

A wary girl living into a Zantedeschia aethiopica flower (English = Arum lily). Every time I aproached it left the flower looking for a safe place below it, when I left returned into the flower.
