Not a clear shot... by marlboromaam

Not a clear shot...

One leg and what it's doing is pretty clear. Little thing was too fast for me and my camera - pulling that silk and zooming back up its thread! LOL! Can you imagine being able to do that - pull silk out of your uhhh bottom?!!

UPDATE: Neoscona crucifera - (Hentz Orb-weaver). On spider ID site - https://spiderid.com/picture/78206/
Clear enough to be scary.

Amazing capture of this gorgeous spider, I never knew where the silk comes from ;-)

yikes, but they do make neat webs.
November 21st, 2020  
their strength is awesome - if they were the size of a dog they would be a nightmare 🤣

I admire spiders and the way they build their webs but don't like the creatures - they look scary Lovely capture of thiis one.

The legs are busy weaving and working their magic.

I wouldn’t want to be so close to such a large spider.
November 21st, 2020  
You must have been very close to shoot this with a 70mm lens... it is nice seeing the belly... typically I’ve only seen the back.
November 21st, 2020  
nice catch

@ludwigsdiana Thanks, Diana! I had an inkling, but now I don't have to imagine it. LOL!

@dutchothotmailcom Never found a web. Just a line that went straight up into the tree.

@koalagardens Yikes! That would be a nightmare.

@sangwann Thank you, Dione! They are pretty scary if you don't know if they're poisonous or not.

@wakelys Very busy. LOL!

@k9photo Perhaps three feet away from it. It was so busy climbing away from me. LOL!

@kvphoto Not too close, KV! 12X zoom on it. It's all I've got so must make the most of it. =)

@pdulis Thanks, Peter!

I'm lucky to get around safely with two legs; can't imagine having to coordinate 8!
November 21st, 2020  
Eeek! LOL Cool shot, though.
November 21st, 2020  
Great capture
November 21st, 2020  
@lyndemc LOL! It made full use of them.

@mittens Thank you, Marilyn!

@bkbinthecity Thanks, BKB!
November 21st, 2020

Oops would have to avoid this one, nice capture

Detailed enough. I'm not bothered by spiders, but I am wary. A few years ago a rather large spider was running across out kitchen floor. I went and grabbed it so as to out it outside, and the thing bit me, a bit of a shock! Anyhow I didn't feel well for a few days after that. So now I am wary with the big spiders. Big for the UK that is.

We'd call it a garden spider here - araneus diadematus - but none of ours has a dangerous bite. Great shot!
November 21st, 2020  
@gamelee I don't blame you! I don't touch them. I used to pick up a daddy long legs - because I thought they wouldn't bite. Wrong! They will bite as I found out. I'm glad your bite did no serious damage. I can appreciate your story. Thank you!

@janturnbull I found it! Neoscona crucifera - (Hentz Orb-weaver)! Thank you, Janet. =)

I see you are dissatisfied with the effect. I know it is very stressful. Therefore, I allow myself a few remarks. First, increase the ISO considerably to make the shutter faster. And when taking photos of insectsto use the continuous mode (I have 9 frames / sec) gives a chance that at least one will hit with sharpness and a nice setting. And don't give up, it's fun.

@haskar Thank you very much! I will give it a try the next time. I can increase the ISO. I don't have a continuous mode, but I can do auto bracketed exposures. Really appreciate the advice - anytime!
November 22nd, 2020  
wow, fantastic shot, I like to see her paws at work on that thin thread
November 22nd, 2020  
@santina Thank you very much, Santina!
November 22nd, 2020  
Clear enough to be scary!
November 22nd, 2020  
@francesc LOL! Thank you, Frances!
November 22nd, 2020  
Not so bad Maggie : we can see so many details , the hair on the legs and “where” the spider thread comes from ! ;)
So hard to have a good focus of that little things !
November 24th, 2020

November 24th, 2020
