Garden Spider

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, May 11, 2008

Well this guy has been building and repairing his web for some weeks now. Started out just a little garden spider and now has a massive web and huge food storage supply. Rain and wind has not dislodge him.

But today we noticed that he is a she. There are little spiders circulating around her web. No wonder he [she] is about 10 times large now. And we have noticed that there aren’t many mosquitoes and other insects around at the moment. So at my daughters urging I got close with the new 100mm f2.8 macro canon lens. Hand held and as close as I could get without losing focus.

Don’t know if there is a Mr Garden Spider around,… have only seen one.  So I guess the wedding photo is of her on her own!  The Web has to be her Veil maybe…!
