“Along Came a Spider”
“No living thing is ugly in this world. Even a tarantula considers itself beautiful”
― Munia Khan
Yes, I know, very original title, but I could not get it out of my head.
I was out for a few hours with my son last weekend, playing with a new Nikon 60mm macro lens, making photos of wildflowers with my portable setup, shown a few days ago. As we were hiking back out, I noticed this spider sunning itself on a milkweed pod next to the trail. The light was wonderful and the composition was pretty much automatic. Since, I had the macro lens with me I figured I’d add this one to my collection. It turned out quite well, I think. Not being a ‘spider person’, I have no idea of the species.
