Caught this little guy in the corner of my eye. I thought it was a just debris caught in a spider web. When bothered it would drop a little and spin around then somehow hoist itself up without moving any body parts. guess it has a silk winch built in.

Suzan, i took a burst of 3 shots handheld. it was bright daylight and the spider was hanging in an opening in a shrub so the background was very deep and dark. i only took the pics thinking it was a spider but really never noticed that it was because it was always in motion spinning around at times. by eye it looked like a piec of a leaf caught in the web. i almost deleted the pics but decided to take a closer look and realized it was a spider. i didn't have much time as i had to goto work. this was the best of the 3 shots. i used a fuji s602z full tele with +4 and +2 close up lenses and also set in macro mode. i don't recal the f/stop or shutter speed. thanx for the comment.
