365:066 Blown Away

I wonder how Mr Spider manages to hang on when the wind blows ... must be that wonderfully sticky silk ... By the way, this little one was only about 3mm across!

Sunshine's just got us a macro lens for the SLR ... Oh My am I EXCITED! These are my first attempts - have to learn to hold the camera steady, and tweak the depth of field (its a bit too much when the bum of a 3mm big spider is in focus but his head is not!)

Can you see the spider hiding? He must only be about 3mm across ...

Only managed to get the wing in focus...

Can you see the little insect (less than a cm long!)
