Black Wood Spider

A short trip to Somanhalli Lake on Kanakpura Road, and i ended up with this image. I never expected myself to be shooting spiders at 500mm!! :)

The light was poor, and all the muck after the rains wasn't helping either. I then came across this spider. Since the sun was behind the subject i thought of using a flash for fill-in, but at the last moment changed my mind and decided to get a little creative. Hope you liked the image.

  6. I usually try to walk around the spider to see what shows the web best. I see you have managed to capture the web and the spider and the details are great.
