Surrendering Spider by George Crawford

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

When you see the glistening water droplets dripping from this tiny spider you could be forgiven for thinking that it’s surrendering to the weather. In fact a few seconds after I took this picture, the wee beastie (no bigger than a pinhead) shot out a single filament of gossamer silk to a plant at least six feet away and escaped across it to fight another day.

1/250 second at f4 and ISO 100, with my little Panasonic DMC-TZ20 pocket camera set on macro mode.

This is my 52nd “Picture of the Day” in Glasgow’s “Herald” newspaper.

Loving to live in the West of Scotland, I’m a wee bit obsessed by the magnificent scenery and nature all around me. I’m particularly keen on the varying moods of the sky and sea, and in macro photography.
