Celestial Spider in Star-Laden Web
This picture is one of those surprises that makes you stop and say, "WOW!" Technically, there are issues--there is a bit of jitter and more of the spider could be clear, but in this case, I think this picture is about magical moments, caught at just the right time. This tiny web was so fine I wouldn't have seen it except that there were many fine dew drops giving it away. I thought I'd take one picture to see if I could capture the droplets, but I didn't expect to get anything. When I looked at the image on my computer, I was totally surprised to find that I'd captured the image of the tiny spider who made the web, complete with droplets on its abdomen. What amazed me was that the flash shone right through the spider and caused it to glow and created iridescence on its legs!! I love the rainbow-colored droplets and all the wonderful bokeh. It's like a spider in a little galaxy, strung with stars!
