Went along with a friend/co-worker today that has been studying a population of wood turtles for the past several years. It's not the easiest time of year to spot them right now but we managed to find two females.

This female orb weaver had made her web in the same field the turtles were using.

Both shots were taken with the 100mm f/2.8 macro on a 40D.

Gorgeous woody! I have one, but have never seen one in the wild.
