Unusual Taste

I planned on featuring something pleasant that would appeal to most tastes but these spider / fly photos caught my attention.  They were taken last year in my backyard.

Unusual Taste

I don’t remember taking the photos – except I do recognize the table in the background.  I must have found the spider/fly somewhere in my backyard while weeding then I placed it on my patio table for photography.  My version of weeding involves garden tools and a camera.  It’s not the most effective way of gardening but I do get some nice photos.

Unusual Taste

My only regret… I should have brought the branch indoors and used my studio lighting, tripod and backdrops.   Oh well…. there’s always next time!
