Saw this leaf hanging downfrom a spiders web, I shot it with my Canon 300mm f/4 lens on spot metering at minimum focal distance.

Very nicely done. It isn't often you can get a spider to set up a scene for you!

Very nice, I have seen a couple like that but have been unable to get the shot as you did.

Thanks for the comments everyone, it's one of my favorite ones that I have shot this fall.

Excellent, perfectly lit. It would be one of my favorites too. Spider silk is amazing. I have seven tarantulas in my care and I have never seen it put to better use.
Cheers,
Steve
