    it's home. I'm going to have to learn the reverse lens macro thing. I would have loved to get closer to this guy (gal?)

    #4 is the strongest of the series. I think the fire hydrant is distracting in the first shot. Great work!

    Thanks. Every time I got the spider in focus, the wind blew :lmao:. The spider tried to go inside the weed so I had to coax it back out. If I hadn't had a camera in hand I'd have more likely been afraid of the creature and run away :lol: .

    That's funny, I feel the same way about spiders, hate them, but compelled to shoot them!

    I like #4 the best overall, well balanced with the fire hydrant not visible and the "weed" leaning into the photo. It also has the spider in the best position over the others.

    Very interesting to me how one can photograph a simple thing that is usually overlooked and make it into an object of curiosity!

    Good job!

    Funny how the camera works to squash ones fears. I felt the same way the first time I flew. Instead of clutching the floor with white knuckles, I went through nearly 4 rolls of film oohing an ahhing over the Outer Banks of NC. It was awesome, and I'm severly acrophobic.

    Agree about the fire hydrant in the first one being distracting, but great captures nonetheless. Love them. And 4 is my favorite too.
