ISO 400, f/9, 1/160s, 18-55mm lens w/10x macro filter on Nikon D40
I think I mentioned how cold and rainy it has been here the past few days. Well, this afternoon the sun kept peeking out in all its glory from behind some passing clouds. It was still chilly, but nice enough to get outside and search for something to photograph. When I walked down to get the boys off the bus, I noticed these gladiolus flowers are starting to bloom on my bank. Better late than never, right?
As I approached them, I saw that this teeny tiny spider had spun her web on them. I spent quite a bit of time trying to photograph her. Macro photography is hard enough, but throw in a couple rambunctious boys and a dog trying to get my attention, and the occasional breeze ... well it is nearly impossible then!
I'm sure the people passing by in their cars thought I was crazy to have my camera inches away from that flower. If only they could see what I was seeing. :)
