The Spider Cave

Though this isn't as focused inside "the cave" as I would have liked, I still thought this was a pretty cool shot and wanted to share it. Can you see the hint of the spider in the cave?

Nice shot! I think I can see him...but I'm not getting any closer!!

He's waiting for you to get closer ;) Nice shot.
About getting close to bumblebees: they are really gentle and laidback, many will even allow you to pet them. So they won't mind you and your camera, I'm sure.

Well I wouldn't stick my hand down there to find out what kind of spider he is but I am curious. He built himself a beautiful home didn't he? And you took a great photo!

A great find TB. He is just waiting for some unsuspecting grasshopper to come along.

Oh! the only kind of spider I know that builds a funnel type web is a Hobo Spider, nasty little beasty!
Nice capture.

It needs to do some cleaning.

I can see enough of a spider to know that it would send my daughter into a conniption. But I agree that the photo itself is incredible!!
PS Am I dating myself by using words like conniption?

Excellent capture. That's a big spider.

Anna said...

Yep, I see your spider, and that's as focused as I want to get.

Beautiful perspective. Given the light you have on this shot, an f/11-f/16 would have helped you get the details on the spider as well.

This is a lovely image anyways.

Nice shot but...eeewww! lol

Karen said...

That is a really, great shot ... and yes, I can just see the spider..

I actually like that you can can just get a hint of it ... it really adds drama to the photo. The lurking, half hidden presence of danger :-)

I really like spiders! I'm so grateful that the gobble up the mosquitoes in the house during the summer! What a wonderful cave!
