Recently I was enjoying the view on an ocean cliff-top when I spotted this guy.
It was a little windy up there but he seemed to manage even though his web was a little knocked around.

The spider is beautiful and well captured. But where is the web?

I must say, I have always wanted to do this type of shots....i.e. with nice backgrounds and all that. Very nice composition! Just a comment, I find the spider a tad too soft, but other than that.....NICE!!!!!

That is one nasty looking spider. Nice shot! Let me know where you live so I know where to avoid going.

Jaynah, those of us who are trying to learn can learn more if you post details of your shot. What camera? Did you use an additional lens? Usual exif stuff?

Thanks

John

What a great shot with the defused background. Very sharp and too close for comfort (I hate spiders):O

tchuanye, you are correct about the softness but unfortunatly this was the best of the six shots I had so it was really a case of this or nothing. I hope to someday reach your level but in the mean time I'm enjoying the experience.

mtritt, I live in New South Wale Australia, and spiders don't swim so you are safe

js63, the exif data is in the image, the lens was a Nikon 5T.

Thank you all for the comments.

I thought it looked like an Australian spider. Not ferocious at all, this one, hey Jaynah? Waiting for your pic of a funnel web.

Thanks for the lens info. Because I am learning, I am afraid I don't know how to read the exif data from the picture. Can anyone enlighten me?

If you run Winxp you can right click, select properties then summary to view the data.

IrfanView, (http://www.irfanview.com) a good free image viewer allows you to select image,information then the EXIF Info button.

Both PSP and Photoshop can also display the data.

Hope that helps.
