My friend Jeff spotted these ladies and their beautiful webs the other day when we were doing a sunrise shoot. You wouldn't believe the contortions that went into getting this. I think it's an immature garden orb weaver. She was shy, but eventually came round.

Love the focus in this one ... from the almost surreal to the tack sharp spider, great composition, like it a lot!

+1 WD!

I've been keeping an eye out for a spider web like this for ages, no suck luck (yet).

thanks guys. backlighting is one of the magical things about photography. I'm afraid I don't do enough with it.
