Sorry, little garden spiders, but your orb webs are so beautiful!
I try to only do this once in a while, when the spiders are building and the sun is shining at just the right angle.
I move around to optimize the sunlight and the background.
It is hard to focus on the web, let alone one little part of it.
So I often crop the photos way down to just one part.
Fake dew. Take that, Mother Nature!
I am still trying to figure out how to get some images with my digital microscope of these, but… uh…
There were actually two webs in good positions this morning.
One I could line up with the blue San Diego sky. The other with our Mimosa tree.
Tiny droplets…oh yeah!
That web is a little messy in the middle, but I love it when it all comes together. Thanks, spiders..
Only you and horror film buffs would go to such great lengths to piss off spiders.
It is a gift… and a curse.
