A summer morning sun after a night of rain and a large Golden Silk Orb Weaver spider web reflecting both, what more could a photographer ask?
I first saw it from a distance, and moved around it finding the best angle. Since the web hung over the bank of a creek and I stood on the bridge over the creek, it limited my movements.
The Golden silk orb weaver at home. The vegetation glistening and gleaming behind the web adds color where none exists.
The close-up, with the body of the spider taking on color due to the angle of the sun and shadow, and the golden silk strand for which is is named on the left side.
