    I've seen lots of images of this spider, but this is my all-time favorite. It's a brilliant and gorgeous composition and execution.

Thank you so much all, I'm so pleased you like it! :) And Jack, tell Monnie that spiders are o.k. as long as they're not in the house, then they're creepy and scary!!

Julie,

This is so good. I've tried and tried to get a good composition and lighting on this orb weaver spider. It is very difficult and you have mastered it. I'm jealous!

Every month, with our camera in hand, we go out and find what we hope will be the “winning photo.”
Those of us that don’t get recognized, just continue to search for that special image, until one day the Congratulations come pouring in from some of the best artist and friends anyone could image.
So to the Better Photo winners for the month of September, I congratulate you on a job so well done.
My very best to all of you, Merna Nobile
