[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Helens recent shots of her spider reminded me of this shot i took last week at the arne nature reserve. There were literally webs everywhere lit up by the morning dew, but this one was the only one that i found inhabited.

Im not sure what type of spider it is, possibly a common orb weaver, feel free to correct me.

thanks for looking

Hi Ewan,
really like this, the BG is a perfect neutral grey and the light you caught in the web is very nice too. Great detail also, but i think a smaller aperture might have got more of the Spider in focus - all in all though, very nicely done!

Hi Ewan,
Your exposure is very successful indeed, greetings

Hi Ewan,
Great details and composition combined with nice backlight produces a well rounded photo. Good job!
Cheers, Andriy
