    Looks like it could be a connect the dots with the web connecting to the bokeh. Outstanding detail on the spider, Melissa. Perfect comp giving him plenty of room to move. Well done all around.

Outstanding close up of this fascinating spider, Melissa! Not to say I'd want to see him in my bedroom (!), but in their own outdoor habitats they really are amazing, strange and beautiful. And we need these guys -- without them we would all be knee-deep in bugs! Their webs are equally amazing, and you caught this very beautifully!

Ruth, I do not much like spiders, either, but do like them when they are in their own element especially when they pose for me.

Debra, I am not afraid of a spider that I can see. It is those you cannot see that could be dangerous. As for bears...I would rather have a strong fence separating me from them.
