Orb Spider on a wobbly web.......

Recommended Posts

Saw a nice Orb Spider just a little while ago, not in the best spot and his web was constantly moving in the breeze, but I tried because I haven't seen on for a while - one from each side of him:

Both great shots Dee....lots of detail......a bit Bright.....a pull down on an exposure slider, or, a tonal adjustment would put that right very easily.

Well-done to capture it when it's waving in the breeze.

How big is it? -- I'd guess a bit bigger than most of our orb-web spiders, but smaller than an American tarantula, just going by the joints of the legs and the body hairs.

Thanks all - Fuji we had very strong sunlight at the time I took it, I did intend to tone it down a little but got distracted and forgot to do so!

Not our biggest spider by a long shot!! Nowhere near the size of our Huntsman spiders, and not the largest Orb I have found, but I did manage to get pretty close to take the shot, and being so close helped to cut out 'the wobbles'
