Good shot, I like the background and the way the spider stands out against it.

Thanks for the kind comments.
I'm not a great spider fan, but they do make interesting subjects.

my own feeling is it would have been better if i could have used a tripod to help increase the DOP, and/or even try focus stacking ( if i fully understood it )it would have been nice if the dew on the cobweb was pin sharp. but i'm pleased never the less.:D

Nice to have the dew and an attractive background colour, sharp too unlike your avatar!

I never seem to be able to get good spider & web shots-must be the dew that helps. Lovely shot!
