Off Dancing with Wolves

Today I'm unplugging so I can finish up the last buff and polish of The Clockwork Wolf, but so that your stop here was not entirely wasted, I have a photo to share:



I've been photographing spiders in the back yard for years, but this little one caught the sunlight so beautifully I was enchanted. Of course the wind was blowing, and the web and the spider were floating up and down, and the only angle I could get on it meant shooting directly into the sun. So as always, I just crossed my fingers, pointed the camera and clicked (and you can see a larger version here.)

I'm calling it Writing Light. :)

  1. What a great photo! The colors in the web are strangely iridescent and yet the spider is ghostly white. Really cool...

    1. The sun gets all the credit for this one, Terlee -- I couldn't even see the spider or the web when I snapped the shot; the sun temporarily blinded me.

  2. That's really gorgeous (and I don't even like spiders!).

    1. I think they're scary-beautiful creatures, Gypsy; like horses I love to take pics of them -- from a safe distance!
