Early yesterday evening I amused myself by documenting the building of a web. It was a difficult task because of failing light, the camera wanting to focus on background foliage and the fineness of the subject itself. I have been unable to identify the spider so far.
She was going like the clappers and moving the web as she set about her task which made it doubly difficult.
Initially, I noticed a ball of white bobbing around and as she went about her business it became looser but this (rather blurred) shot shows the thread before she would pull it out.
Finally, after building this rather loose arrangement, she settled and I got a snap... with the flash on.
This morning the whole web was gone and no sign of the spider. She's probably been eaten by a bird, which she didn't see because some dill blinded her with a flash of light last night. Sorry little spider...
