Once again that common spider that seems to be found everywhere spun it's web by my office. This time his web was in sunlight.

I used a flash to try to deal with the backlighting.

But thought the back lighting made for a more interesting picture.

His web was in a place I could photograph from more than one side. I actually took two of these at two different apertures (the background was very distracting).

And finally took his underside. It wasn't what I was expecting at all, and I thought it was more interesting than his back.

Yeah, agree with Keith. Good series, and #3 is a real keeper.

Thanks - I was really disappointed with the last one. That's the first time I've tried to photograph that side of this particular species of spider (does anyone know what it is?) and the picture is very poor. But I posted it anyway, because I thought his abdomen was so interesting, compared to his rather boring back.
