I found this spider hanging on 8 waiting for his next meal to fly in while I was out on a Sunday morning walk up in Palm Beach, FL. I used Apple's iPhoto to edit the image. Enjoy!

Very cool spidy Michael. But the subject matter makes me nervous. I hate spiders ;0) #892663

I don't really like spiders, either, but they are fascinating creatures, though. I got a shot of a huge Black widow during my trip to Moab, that I might download, but maybe I'll scare away people from my gallery. I have to think it over. Great capture, Michael! #5740112

Thank you Kathy and Eivor for your comments here. I don't think I would be to wild to see one of these crawling on my leg either but doing their thing in their space is as important as the sun rising every morning. What we do to the web, we do to ourselves. Upload your Black Widow Eivor. I'd really like to see that! #5740925

The color drew me first, the DOF is amazing, and the spider is very cool! There's one strand lit by the light there near the center/bottom of the photo... it takes the eye right up to your subject on the web brilliantly. #5779163
