[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

I do not have much time for TN, but I decided to look to my last summer archive an upload this picture.

It is Araneus diadematus (cross spider), quite common in Poland.
If you look carefully you could see how it is producing the thread (it is leaving the end of the abdomen) and with one of the leg holding it.

Post processing: a bit cropped and sharpen.

Thanks for viewing

Czesc Aniu!

Swietne zdjecie moim zdaniem. Pieknie widoczny rysunek na odwloku pajaka, dobra kompozycja i nietypowe tlo. Faktycznie, mozna zobaczyc technike tkania sieci przy okazji. Bardzo mi sie podoba.

Hi Ania.
I have missed few you amazing shot and now comment them with great pleasure. Simply outstanding reproduction of the fine specimen of spider and its web. I also am impressed with amazing BG. Its blurriness and delicateness are superb. Exposure of the main subject and entire of the scene is spot on too. Bravo. Well done.

Hello Ania,
Where are you?????????????
You posted this in January and then disappeared.
What a lovely picture, as usual!
The details on the abdomen of this Spider are super creation of nature and you have captured them with your great sense of aesthetics.
The entire composition leaves me wonder-struck at your skills.
Start posting again.

Hello Ania,
One of the finest macro shot. I appreciate the details, POV & sharpness. TFS
