Garden Spider

Garden Spider

Photo Information
One of the late Summer visitors to the garden, I named him Fred, took about 15 minutes setting up this shot with a very dark green background and camera on tripod, I love the backlighting on this shot.

He really was a fat spider too

We must have had over 50 of these around the garden, you couldnt walk anywhere without disturbing a web, a bit annoying really as we were wanting to get the garden furniture covered up for winter but didnt want to disturb the webs.
