Many orb-weaver spiders build a new web each day. Generally, towards evening, the spider will consume their old web, rest for approximately an hour, then spin a new web in the same general location. Thus, the webs of orb-weavers are generally free of the accumulation of detritus common to other species such as black widow spiders. This beautiful lady built her web so I could see her underside, which is pretty neat. If you look closely at her rear end, you can see her spinnerets. That’s where that amazing silk comes from. I took this on my porch in Rockaway, NJ USA with my Nikon D3100 and the 85mm macro lens.

I’ve always appreciated nature, but I didn’t show interest in photography until digital started to come into it’s own. I had many cheap cameras over the years, but when I got the Nikon D3100 for my birthday last year, I really started to realize what photography was all about. I’ve had such a blast learning on the go over the past 10 months. I’ve gotten shots that I could have only dreamed of a year ago. I hope you all enjoy my photos, and by all means, BUY SOMETHING! =)

    You seriously need to put a warning on these things… Ugh.. this is just so detailed….superb macro work though….I would normally fave such good work but favoring a spider image .. well, just can’t do it….if I ever saw this guy in my house you could bet your life there’d be a for sale sign up on the lawn the very next morning..

  • Awww don’t be hatin’ on the poor orb weaver! LOL. I’ve NEVER seen one of these in a house before either. They stay outside where they belong. =) Thanks for the comment.
