    Wow. Your first image could be an introductory scene from a Jurassic Park episode. And what a super portrait of the spider, yet another that I have yet to meet in person.

    • Having never seen Jurassic Park I wouldn’t make that connection but glad it strikes you as worthy of being considered cinematic. Had you been there with me you might have met several dozen as there was a spider on almost every blade of grass…exaggeration. But there were many. I guess the kids all stayed close to home.

  5. Two dramatically different subjects united by a common theme of back lighting. The sky in the first image is especially striking.

    I suspect that spider’s admiring its handiwork, just as we’re admiring your photo.
