Photograhing Golden Orb Spiders.

Apart from the fat lady who sits outside the front door and the others of her ilk we have around the garden, we now have one that has made it’s web above the car over the space that will one day become a car port (if we ever manage to keep  any money for more than 5 minutes that is).

She (I assume it’s a she) has managed to cover a span of more than two metres! Currently, she is sitting, seemingly in mid-air, three metres above the ground and swaying gently in the breeze! Eventually some bird will no doubt realise there is a succulent morsel hanging in mid-air and make a grab for it, but until then it just looks odd hanging in nothingness. 🙂

If you’re wondering where the photos are, I doubt you’ve ever tried to photograph a translucent spiders web three meters away that has the sky as a background. I tells ya it ain’t easy!! On the other hand if you *can* come up with some suggestions on how to do it effectively please pass those suggestion on! 🙂

  1. That crossed my mind, but then you just see the web not the spider.

    On the other hand a picture of a spider at the centre of a 2 metre wide web wouldn’t be too exciting I suppose! 🙂

    It’s worth a try.
