I have posted images of these spiders before,(apologies to those who have phobias of spiders, (my better half cant wait until I stop taking photos of them, she will only look at them on the computer from the doorway) They are quite interesting because of their size and they are not easily disturbed. If you are into spiders they are called Golden Orb Weaving Spiders. Scientific name???

And another similar spider only 10 metres away. Both photos were taken using a flash setting but I experimented with the flash strength. Camera Olympus C8080.

Explain to your wife that these are just fellow women.

And they are NOT fat, just pleasently plump...

Yum!

Good detailed shot, right down to the little hairs on its legs. I especially like
the first one because you got the good angle for light to catch most all of
the web. Can't wait for spring to get here so I can get back into the macro
world of wildlife. Not that I'm getting tired of shooting birds (never tire of that),
it's just that there is a whole other world out there.

I'm not a big fan of furry spiders!!! (Those pictures make me want to pet a cockroach!)

Nice work!
