[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I watched this little guy build his whole web from scratch, its web truly is a natural work of art. To give you an idea of scale, this spider was only about 3 millimetres long but its entire web covered an area of about 3 feet!

I know a lot of people don't like spiders but you can't help being amazed by the incredible structures they make.

Hi Paul , this is a cool shot , the web is fantastic and the of centre look is perfect for this, amazing work by you and the spider.


This one looks very scary. The scarier the better. And the light on the web is just spectacular.

Good job spider-man!

Great composition. Well done.

HI Paul
I will indeed agree with those who dislike spiders -- I will admit to fearing them.
However, I do admire their work and in this case yours.
Nice capture, nice composition I like the light on the arachnid and the tracery of light on its web.
Well done

Great capture. Love the bug posted on a black background.
Well done.
