SPIDER ALERT!! – UNINVITED HOUSE GUEST – 40

LOOK AWAY NOW IF YOU DON’T LIKE SPIDERS.

Overnight this uninvited guest moved in and built a huge web in the hallway of our house. The web was anchored to a lightbulb, one of my shoes and a plastic shoe tray.

It was a magnificent piece of engineering – but it had to go – as did the spider!!

The world seems to be covered in spider’s webs at the moment – each one hung with its own diamond necklace!

D800 + 70-300mm lens @ 270mm; ISO 400, 0.5sec @ f/16 – and still the depth of focus was barely enough!
