I went for a short walk up the hill and discovered there are hundreds (if not thousands) of spider webs every square km. This one was horizontal, suspended between stalks of heather over a burn (small stream). It was just at the right angle to catch the sunlight.

Magnificent
Very nicely photographed

On a side note, spiders web (silk) was once used for cross-hairs in early theodolites.
It was on of the skills of early surveyors to replace ruptured cross-hairs in the field.

Wow, I didn't know that. How does a human mend a spider web?

I guess that was the last thing on a surveyors mind :-)

I do know if you're tall and on a bushwalk (ramble, hike) it was an advantage for the followers to have the tallest one out front and rupture all those blessed spiders webs across the track
Of course yours truly was rewarded with that task without question :rolleyes:

I posted a couple of these in the 90D thread, but they really belong over here! This is a wolf spider that was outside, it had much more pronounced markings than most of the ones I see...it also jumped a few times as I was trying to herd to some place where I could take a couple pics of it, I've never seen them jump before!

One of the few times I was able to get some decent shots of a male jumping spider...these things are tiny and MUCH more active then the females so they are really difficult to track

All excellent Jay! Aren't those little jumpers great subjects? Like mantids, I love the way they actually look at the camera.

Thanks! Jumpers will always be some of my favorite subjects. I can't count how many pictures of them I've taken, but there's always something a little different about each one, they do seem to have more "personality" than most other bugs/spiders/insects. There aren't many mantids where I live unfortunately, but I do agree that they pose extremely well!
