WOW..great image, I would say you had to get in real close on this one, the detail is amazing
Mary MacADNski: They're plentiful at this time of year.
Awesome shot Mary! Not a common position to catch a spider in!
Mary MacADNski: Most of the ones I got that day were upside down.

It's fascinating to see how they do it and also the relative strength of that web when it's done.
Mary MacADNski: I don't like when I destroy or unhook one by mistake.
Incredible detail, Mary! Will we get to see the completed web?
Mary MacADNski: Not that one but I did get some webs an hour or so later.
I have never seen web making in close up, brilliant.
Mary MacADNski: They are busy at it.

This looks like the Orb Wed Spiders or Harvest Spiders we get here; to catch it spinning it web is amazing work, Mary (I mean on your part)
Mary MacADNski: Do you know what the orange ball is on it's leg?
A fine close up of a spider at work Mary
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Bill. It could be better, of course.
Very good close-up Mary, it's the time of year for shots like this isn't it.
Mary MacADNski: Yes, the spiders are very busy.

My immediate thought is that it could be a mite of some sort, but it is very rounded if it is. I will try to find out
Mary MacADNski: I can send you the file and then you can look at it enlarged.

Now this is a demonstration of talent, Mary!
Mary MacADNski: Yes, something like making fishing nets in human ingenuity.
Fabulous capture Mary. A likey for me!
Mary MacADNski: I'm very pleased to get your likey, Richard. Thank you.
Incredible detail on this garden spider! The lighting is beautiful as well.
Mary MacADNski: I couldn't get any other angle. Two shots - same angle.
A fine capture of the engineer at work
Mary MacADNski: She is determined to gather some prey.
