Thank you, Mangoes!
Poor little spider. You have a good eye for detail.
Thank you, GFA!
I'm liking your thinking all around here.
Thanks, MC! I could probably spin a tale or two about Seven's tasty May Fly dinners, or of her dream of wanting to sail on one of the many boats she has seen drifting in from Quebec. Maybe she longs to meet another spider, and they might go for a walk along the deck together, or if she's feeling really adventurous, down to the harbor for a day to share their dreams and visit relatives!
I really like the idea behind the photo, and the trace of the web visible on the right side. Her "name" is apt, and you have had fun with this photo. Maybe you should write a story about "7"... Voted!!
back again with my votes for now
Thank you... you're both very sweet!
thumbs up for Seven and for you, submitter!
Back to vote again..for Seven!
Thank you for coming to see Seven again! (I decided she needed a name...)
back for a visit +.
Thank you so much, Kell! I really appreciate your comments. I'm not a spider fan myself... got right squeamish over LC's shot last week, lol! Spiders and I have an agreement; if they stay outdoors or out of my reach inside, they can live. The second I see them breaking the rules though, all bets are off! That having been said, I do appreciate their different body styles and colors, and have been known to do extensive research on a specimen, after he's been captured, released or (sadly, but I can't help it!) terminated.
Sorry slr but I'm not a great fan of spiders (though I do escort them out of the house when possible) but I'm a great fan of this shot! I took the chance of zooming in and the clarity of the spider is great! I also like the subtle lighting on the web. Good job!
Thanks so much, TD!
Great shot of the spider with a difference like how you have detailed the web voteing later
Thank you for making your keen observations known, SLR. I appreciate the time you have taken!
I'm a big fan of spider shots also and think this one is really good. Especially great zoomed in. While zoomed I really like a framing of this where the spider is still on the upper and left thirds, but you have a much smaller portion of out of focus picture and in the part that is left the silver of her web is really highlighted. Nice photo!
Thankz, Joelz... Great book! This spider never did reveal her name to me, but I was inspired by her ability to weave that web, despite her disability. I love that even with its imperfections, she thrived, catching bugs as they flew in from glacial Lake Memphremagog beyond the trees.
I love this idea! Especially since I just finished reading Charlotte's Web
Thank you for the wonderful comment, LC!
hey...I'm a fan of spider shots and this is a very good one...and even better when I employ the zoom for added detail. Love your unique spin on this week's topic! good colors and great dof. kudos to you on your entry.
