Hard at work

Photo Information
I went for an early morning walk and found this 2 spider webs, One finished and the other , slightly smaller still in progress, I st there and watched for a while.
It took a about 5 takes with my VS20. The problem is, that here in Australia the Sun shines which renders the screen display useless.
Lucky you in Europe with mostly miserable weather. That's where the mirror-less cameras come in to they're own. ( Just kidding)

A good result anyway....Europe is "world" and sun shines everywhere at same way, IMHO. Just said screens are useless all over the world in these conditions. I do have a PENTAX Optio RZ 18. Wonderful camera but screen is useless as you state in your photo infos. Anyway both our compact cameras work well... I suggest Pentacx to use same devices of compact Leica or Panasonic cameras: an electronic viewfinder...very useful in these bad light conditions....just a problem for battery life but you can perform good panning or macro or all kind of pictures forgetting for a while "screen reflections"....(LEICA VLux type 114 i.e.)....Sorry this is not an advert for "stranger"brands...it is an idea launched to Pentax!!!

There are many European countries where the sun shines a lot. It's even worst if it reflects off snow! But I do understand your point. Nice results anyhow! Sun is not a problem for you :p

Interesting photo whether the sun was shinig or otherwise -- it looks as if the main web is horizontal with the weight of the spider in the centre pulling the middle downwards. Is this the case? Or is it some sort of illusion?
