    Some of the spider webs I encountered yesterday. The first three were taken with a Vivitar 200/3.5, the last with a Vivitar 35-70mm set at 35mm.

    Another web pic, this time from the Sakar 135/2.5. I'm going to use this thread to post photos of interesting webs I come across. They fascinate me for some reason.

    I noticed this web appeared in our bushes overnight. First photo was with the MD 28/2.8, and the second with the Vivitar 100-200mm macro. That lens has a very thin DOF at 200mm and f/4.

    That second shot is great.
    I saw a study on how certain drugs influence the way the spiders make their web, looks like that one had some wacky tobacco ;)

    Thanks Kevin. It definitely was off kilter. I wonder how much the government paid for that study? :D

    Here's my front door spider again, with a same scale photo of a Black and Yellow Argiope (Orbweaver) I discovered over our back door this afternoon. I haven't seen one of these in years. It is a female. The males are much smaller.

    Thanks. My friends tell me I'm not right because I have this obsession with finding spiders to photograph. :D

    An ornamental evergreen down the street was covered with spider webs glistening with dew this morning. Here's a pic with the Minolta MD Macro 50/3.5 without the extension tube:

    Here's one with the extension tube attached. It took many, many handheld attempts to get this pic, and it is still not as sharp as I'd like.

    A few webs from around a local lake, including one pic with 3 webs on one branch. The spider close-up was with the Rokkor 30cm, the other two with a Rokkor 28mm.
