I get lost with my camera. I see the trees, and the forest disappears. I follow lizards into the dark, back corners of people’s patios and stumble on crisscrossing spiderwebs. This was my attempt to weave myself between their webs without disturbing them but still getting an interesting shot.
Orchard Orbweavers can be difficult to photograph well. They are smallish and often found in the woods where their vibrant green and yellow hues blend in with the trees (color version). However, they are worth the effort. Their webs are works of art, and they are dramatically long-legged and elegant. I could watch them quietly hanging out on their web for hours.
