Yesterday I spotted this spider web at lunch. The drops this time were supplied by a sprinkler - rain is still a distant future event for us. I now have a similar topic taken with the K100, K10 and K20, all with the Vivitar 105mm macro.

#1 - no flash:



#2 - these two were taken without the flash and the wb set for shady (I had been taking pictures of flowers in the shade just before I saw the wet web).



We may not have the same type of spider webs that Rick finds, but ours can be interesting, too.

Having seen the earlier shots, I think I can say you've outdone yourself, Harriet. This are simply fantastic. I love the interplay of colors and light.

GW - I love taking pictures of water drops, getting the reflections in them. I didn't realize you hadn't seen my earlier pictures taken with this lens. The K10 pictures are covered in this thread: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/fo...mp;forum_id=80and a thread with a picture from the K100: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/fo...mp;forum_id=80. I've been extremely happy with this lens. I once took some comparison shots with the Pentax 100mm macro and didn't see any reason to change since the Viv more than held its own against the more modern Pentax, and you don't really need AF when shooting macro (it sometimes actually works against you if you are hand-holding).
