This morning while cleaning the balcony; I had to displace a seven legged spider that had decided to take up residence on the broom handle. But he did pose for a glamour shot before I moved the broom.
While I was out this weekend, when I was out looking for small things to take pictures of I found some of the local wildlife which fit my photography goals nicely. I found some Orb -Weaver spiders, a common site in the pacific northwest, and was able to capture some pretty amazing photos of them.
More amazingly, two of the spiders I found were in the process of building their webs. I remembered that my camera has the ability to shoot video and was able to hold it decently still to answer a question I’ve always wondered: How do spiders build their webs?
