Big hairy spider warning. Just saying so in case, don't tell me I didn't warn you. )
Mum found a spider in an impressive web tonight. I took some photos, zoomed in on one... and realised I was taking a picture of its underside. I went to walk around the clothesline, but before I got there, I found another web with an even larger spider. I had to crawl about a bit to get to the right side of the web without disturbing the spider, but got there in the end. I took quite a few photos, many were fuzzy. I had to use the flash because the breeze was moving the webs too much for a slower shot. I also have to work out how to manually trip the focus flash so I can use manual focus in darker situations. Does anyone have any advice here? Though I got some decent shots I'm sure there's a better way.

Anyhow, as I got relatively close for this shot (the first image is cropped a fair bit though) I can offer you a further close-up of the same shot.
More spider, just in case you hadn't had enough )

Remembering past reactions, I put today's picture, including one spider, under a cut. It was really a very personable spider, I promise )

This spider was also very ambitious. Despite not being very big at all it built a web that was anchored at the ground and stretched to at least eight feet. I think the strand of web I walked through several metres off to one side may have had something to do with him too. Where the blazes does one little spider FIT all that web?

Excuse the lack of higher effort photos this week, I've had four consecutive days with at least six hours of on-my-feet circulation desk work in hot weather. Being school holidays and the first week after reopening I've been mostly kept very busy. I enjoy my job regardless of this - but it's kind of tiring when it's hot. Coming home and collapsing on the couch, some days with a movie, is more or less the rest of my day.
