Living Things : Obviously Lying in Wait

Week 15/26: #BWProject26

This spider is not one to take on a bee, unlike the one I posted yesterday, but was sitting in a very fine, almost invisible web above the wet giant hosta leaf. It seems to be hovering in mid air and is so visible I can't imagine how any prey would be surprised by it. Unlike yesterday's gruesome scene which needed colour to be properly appreciated, this one is perfect for converting to black and white for the theme.

  1. Thank you +soo in lee – you see, I was looking at the leaf, at the patterns of the shapes on it, when suddenly I saw that there was a spider sitting above it. But I wouldn't have seen it if I hadn't been looking really carefully. Then I focused carefully on the spider, not on the leaf. I focused manually there, or the camera would have focused on the leaf.

  2. Amazing shot – aren't spiders fabulous creatures? Now I have a complaint – not only do you have hummingbirds in your hostas, you also have GIANT hostas! again I feel I'm falling short ;0)
