    Fine, so it's not a bug ;)
    This is my first attempt at capturing an image like this. How'd I do ;)

    Well! You did stunningly well!
    I recently detected an old print of my first attempt to photograph a spider in its web and was surprised at how well I did that once.
    Afterwards... I always had either camera-shake or "cobweb-shake" and have never achieved such well-focused photo as you have! Lovely background and - hey! - that is a cool looking spider, too!!!!

    Thanks LaFoto and Amanda :) I'll have to try again!

    And Raymond, I tried to get a picture with my 75-300, but couldn't find the spider! So, this picture is at 70mm (x1.5)
    As for the spider, I have no idea what it is, but I'm not getting too close!

    very neat shot... the web is crisp and the use of shallow dof gives it a very fragile look.. makes it stand out more..cool spidey.. nice light on him..
    you did great :thumbsup:
