I almost walk straight into this spiders web. Lucky because it had a very nice little home which appeared as if it was floating berween 2 trees. It was hard getting this shot because when I got closer it backup and when I moved away it came out. So there Iam looking like a drunken fool swaying back and forth with my camera for about 5 minutes. I didn't get the shot and clarity I really wanted but here it is none the less.

Hi Matthew,
Sounds like you had a difficult time of it..
Macro work can be very challenging, with many variables to content with :)
Spiders on webs present more difficulties. with the primary one air movement. Even movement of the web that's barely perceptable to the eye, will affect the shot. i.e. sharpness.
This is an interesting composition. I think it would be better, if more of the spider could be seen. Your flash has lit-up the tiny eyes nicely..
Great effort & Well done.

An interesting photo. I like that you manage to light up the red spider.
