I used to see these all the time growing up in VA first one I've seen in NY. We used to call them writing spiders because they weave a zig zag pattern on the web. No pp.

thanks for the post I think you are correct. It was working on the zig zag this morning. I plan on checking it later today.

Checked out the link. Wow some impressive pics. I must have been away and missed that post. I haven't picked up a macro lens yet (nikon6t). Just have to get it by the boss after the cam purchase. I lived in Germany for four years and loved every minute of it, wish they had digicams back then.
