I like your photo. It sometimes feel that subjects like this get neglected on TN. There are many beautiful landscapes, of course, but not as many close-up explorations of things such as rock surfaces, etc. I hope you'll forgive me for using your photo to advocate a little for the "abstract nature" category.
I like the colors, the texures, the compositions, and the spirit.
I really enjoy this photo. I can imagine what it must be like, the entire landscape.
What a cool shot! and what an interesting situation. I've see spiders nursing eggs sacs before, but I always imagined, for some reason, that they came out of the sac and were immediately on their own. How interesting that the parents continue to look after them. I Wikipedia'ed spiders to see if they reproduced sexually(because I am ignorant), and what did I see but a photo of a this very species(but not as good as yours). It's an orb weaver!
A great shot Brenda.
What a nice place. I can imagine what it is like to be there.
Just wanted you to know that I think this is a very interesting species! I've never seen such a creature. A different and wonderful thing to post on TN.
No reply necessary. Just wanted you to know.
Great photograph Mehran,
One of my favorite things is the detail in the eyes. They are not like ours.
I began to answer your question, but I gave up because there are so many ways to view the situation.
Charged with feeling and with quiet action.
The sun is about to slip away.
Nice colors with the clouds.
I am wondering what kind of lens you used.
There seems to be a bit of a fish bowl effect.
I like it. Your photograph is not just standing still. It is alive with motion: the motion of the seasons.
I like how the leaves float off into space, into the infinite ebb and flow of time. The division of water and sky is blurred. Water becomes air, trees become autumn colored clouds.
I agree with your other commenter: it is not the typical subject for TN, and it is very interesting!
No vote fishing here... Just thought it was cool :)
Thanks for sharing.
I have seen photos of these creatures often on TN, and I have become very fond of them.
Engaging point of view. Nice colors.
I love it.
