Spider

This could have been with my photos leading up to Halloween. Ghosts, witches, and spider webs seem to be some of the basic accoutrements of the season. I did take this photo on Halloween and it did sort of startle me when I caught site of this huge web, but I quickly saw the potential for a photograph and that fear just melted away.

I have to admit that I didn't take this photo in Phoenix. I was away for the weekend visiting a friend at his cabin in the mountains north of Phoenix. We spotted this beauty while out for a walk.



When I downloaded this photo and examined it closely, it looked to me like the spider had a jack-o-lantern face looking right at me.

I like the way the sun illuminates a little more than half of the web. The construction work of the spider is quite evident when this photo is enlarged.

The web is huge! It always amazes me how fast a spider can weave one of these webs, and the beauty of them.

The light on the web (1st shot) is fantastic!
