Our resident spider has been growing in size. Her web has been getting bigger and bigger, and she spent most of the morning yesterday eating a small cockroach! I think she's loading up to produce some eggs. :)
Anyway, all this time I've been photographing her underside because I didn't have access to the top side of her web - since she's spun it along the outside of one of our windows and sits between the web and the wall. But now she's moved the web higher and so I can clearly see her through the window of the living room.
This morning was cloudy outside and so there was nice even light. Plus, I wanted to play around with some of the light settings on my camera and decided to photograph her through the glass window. This is what I got.
I used the "cloudy" setting for the white balance - so the picture colours are more natural - and not blue as in the earlier spider pictures (though I also kinda like the blue). I also set the sharpness to high and set the color setting to vivid.
