    Aren't most spiders meant to create a new web every day ? looks like a lot of work

    USA's a couple things from Wikipedia:

    "...It is common for spiders to eat their own web daily to recoup some of the energy used in spinning..."

    and the web I shot is called a "Spiral Orb Web"

    Looks more like a "LP" 33.3 rpm...

    Very nice detail indeed!

    Nah, the grooves are too wide. I'd say that's a 78! :p 

    And yes, I'm old enough to have owned some of those.

    And it turns out that "Manual Focus Assist" is tailor made for getting sharp focus on such thin delicate detail.
    Focus Peaking was too overpowering...the whole thing lit up like a Christmas Tree.
    But "MF" zoomed it up and I could then plainly see when it was in precise focus.
