Hey all,

while I so admire the photography and the challenge of trying to get a great web - I gotta say, asa female, not really thrilled with spiders - YIKES! there are some ugly looking spiders here!

Hey Norm in Fujino(Sat Sep 24th, 2005 10:04 am) - what the heck is that? both of yours looklike man-eating spiders that I would hate to run into in a sleeping bag!

Raghu- love your second "web.jpeg" - nice shot!

I am moving to NC this week and I'm sure that I will have my share of nasty looking spiders living in some great webs! maybe I can catch a good photo with some of the advice here. (olympus c750)

later all, Betty

Wow, Raghu, that is just amazingly clear. (I'm talking about the picture on the first page of this thread.)

I had the most wonderful web a few mornings ago that was all rainbows of color in the dawn, but I messed up the picture. I think if I'd moved around a lot more, that it could maybe have been a little more like yours.

Inspiring picture!!!!!

I am no expert offer specific advice, but I would like share my experience and photos. I attach two photos, one with a dark background (night sky) and the other with a bright background - both posted in this forum sometime back. I did not have to touch the wed (nor sprinkle water or powder), but only had to choose an angle that reflected thesilky lustre of the web strings. Both shots required enormous patience. I own a Panasonic FZ-3 and post my photos regularly in the Panasonic forum, and I have seen quite a few very nice photographs of spider webs in that forum. May be you can check on that.


Again, that is such a beautiful image!!!

My attempt was so heavy handed in comparison.

I'm glad someone sent me here to this thread.

This was my attempt, but what a wasted opportunity.

I wish I'd thought of focusing on the stick the web is attached to.

Quite honestly, I think that was a joke.

(though... years ago I used to kill earwigs all the time because of how menacing they look. And they used to bite me if I sat outside in the evening. Then, a small grass snake moved in and I thought I should leave all the bugs for him. And after that, after I stopped killing the earwigs, I was never bitten again. not ever.)

In terms of the types of spiders around, I once saw this large, bright yellow one. I've only ever seen the one.

Last evening I was a bit concerned that there was a deathwatch beetle near at hand. In searching out some info on the net, I ran acrossa site of major magnification photography...

You might find this picture of spider web-making spigots interesting:
