I had fun taking some photos of those funnel-web spider webs on that misty morning when they were covered with little drops. And I said that when the big garden spiders showed up, I would do the same thing. But they come now, and they aren’t big yet. Also, it is dry in San Diego today, so I broke out the little mister/spray bottle from my camera bag, the one I use to make fake ‘dew’ on flowers, and used it.
There is a dry orb web.
A little artificial nature, and you have magic… and a pissed off spider.
I did not damage the web. He was already repairing it.
I should have put my macro-photo lens on.
I will do more of these later, when the webs are bigger. Sooner or later, the camera, the lighting, and the wet webs will come together.
The perfect shot is always illusive. I am still trying to get that perfect photo of a dog shaking off water, when the sun lights all the drops like diamonds.
I found a few other webs, and the pictures got better.
It is actually tricky to focus on a web.
Sometimes it works.
And sometimes it is blurry, but still interesting.
You just never know until you see the pictures big.
Okay, I leave you with one artificially moistened funnel web, just for old time’s sake.
