Day 7: Keep Your Enemies Closer.

Being in love with wildlife photography, it’s a bit of a disadvantage to be afraid of spiders bigger than a 1p coin.

Everyone says full immersion is the cure but I’d rather just have a mutual agreement not to bother each other.

This guy/gal was just chilling on his/her web so I took a photo. The diagonal of the silk composed well with the position of the spider in the frame. Had he/she moved, I wouldn’t have taken the shot, but not because of compositional discrepancies. No, I would’ve probably dropped the camera altogether and ran to my room.

Day 5: Sheath.

I can’t think of a reason why a spider would spread its web across a sapling. Was it waiting for the plant to grow and stretch the web? If so, that’s a seriously intelligent and very lazy spider, though those two go hand in hand quite well (at least that’s how I explain my life).

Used my “purple-haze” technique in this one too. I’m sure I’m not a pioneer but that name should stick! (hopefully better than “fetch”).IMG_4776
