I was on the back deck the other morning drinking a cup of coffee, when I noticed a tiny spider making a really neat looking web. With my camera and macro lens in tow I went to take a closer look. What I found was a tiny “spiky-looking” spider that is generically called an orb weaver. (It’s actual name is Micrathena Gracilis.) It is fun to watch this tiny creature build such a large intricate web.
I captured this image using my 105mm VR micro. The camera was tripod mounted. Please share any thoughts you have. Please follow my blog or view my gallery images at my domain: www.tobygant.com.
