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.
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.
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!
