Golden Silk Orb-Weaver
Photographer: Beth Tattersall
Location: Mobile, AL
These spiders weave beautiful webs, and this one was catching the afternoon sun perfectly. I was standing under the web, directly under the (large) spider shooting with a flash when it occurred to me if I startled it with the flash it was going to drop square onto the camera, and consequently, my face. I didn't take too many shots after that.
