Spotted Orb Weaver
Photographer: Kelly Bracken
Location: Torrance, CA
Story: 
I was leaving work one evening and right in front of my car was this very large spider who had spun a web up against the fire hydrant and a bush. I thought it was cool and almost drove away, but decided to try shooting a couple of shots just for fun. Half hour later I had a whole series of shots and unfortunately it was just too dark to keep shooting. Such a great surprise, reminds me to always keep my camera close and always take the time to capture an image especially this one, 2 days before Halloween!
