Not for arachnophobes…..

I ignore the majority of Spiders’ webs which adorn my house at this time of year, as I’m always looking for a good photo opportunity to take a picture of the resident Spider, or it’s prey.  This is one of the ladies which live near my backdoor, she is an orb weaver who usually comes out during the night.  Today she has been sitting in the middle of her now tatty web, catching various insects.  Her body is about half and inch long.

This poor fellow became trapped in another web, and attracted my attention by frantically trying to fly away, but he was firmly trapped.  Once he had posed for his photo, he was released.

As usual, taken with the Canon EOS 550D and Macro lens.
