    Wrapping up lunch....

    I was out pulling weeds yesterday when I saw this magnificent specimen wrapping up its lunch.

    Wow - very nice! Any part worth blowing up?

    Thanks SC. What do you mean by any part worth blowing up?

    Hey Hammster - I was wondering if you could now zoom in and get an even closer, close-up. "Blow up" is an older term meaning to crop and zoom in a picture.

    Lol... I guess, "blow up" may be politically incorrect now, these days...

    Thanks SC. I figured that's what you meant, but just wanted to make sure. I imagine I can crop it even closer. Might be fun to see what comes of it. I wanted there to be some green in the background so that's why I left it like I did.

    Agree with Hammster. That looks like a big spider, otherwise you've got a pretty good macro lens. Pity the rest of the web (on which the spider's on) is hard to spot. Perhaps it's the jpg compression.

    Oh yeah... most likely.

    The spider's legs were probably about 2-3" across. So, a fairly good sized spider.
    It was interesting in that the web wasn't even easy to see in person. It was extremely fine. Kind of like the perfect web in that a "victim" wouldn't see it and would get trapped easily. For me, I kind of like the look that the spider is nearly floating on just a hint of web. Keeps the focus on the spider and "lunch".

    Yes, either way, spidey's really mean-looking... ;P
