Patiently Hanging Around by Barrie Woodward

Garden Orb Spider has spun its web in a clump of dying wild flowers. Waiting for that unsuspecting bug to come along on to the web, to then be parceled up for a snack later on.

Lancashire NW England

Sony DSC-HX1

My pictures are taken with a Sony DSC-HX1. What you see is pretty much what comes from the memory card, with maybe a touch of rotation and or cropping.
I probably wouldn’t be taking so many pictures if it weren’t for the camera. It has been worth every penny as it has captured some great memories since I got it in 2009.
Feel free to comment on any of the pictures. I’m all for learning how to improve.

    wow! Extraordinary work…. Congratulations on the well deserved features!!

  • Thanks. Saturday was the first time I’ve seen the sun in what feels like weeks. This was one of 3 Garden Orb spiders in that small area and the only one that was on the right side of the web to benefit me with light.
