National Spinning and Weaving Week


I just read on Dave's blog that this week is all about spinning and weaving. And there's been some of that going on here. Alas, not by me but still quite exciting for me. I spent much of last evening taking picture to commemorate this event. And now....Charlotte. You can barely see her up there in the top of the picture. I'm not sure why the symmetry is upset there towards the bottom. She seemed unconcerned and possibly that was because in the middle of our photo shoot, she captured dinner. A moth flew right into the web and she hit it sooo fast. I was looking through the viewfinder and I was never able to actually see the web, so I would use her as a place to look toward. All of a sudden....BAM. Haha scared me and I almost fell off the porch. Shooting straight into the web I got nothing, so I had to shoot sort of parallel to the web and then angle in a bit. I won't go into how many pictures got dumped! She was a fat girl, and judging by how fast she jumped that moth, was hungry too. And here she is in all her creamy colored glory.

Hey, I giess even spiders can drop a stitch. VERY cool photos. Were you using a macro lens?

Susan said...

Thanks Paris!

Susan said...

Dave, I had the macro turned on so I guess the answer is yes. There is a lot I need to learn about the settings on this camera because I found another place to turn on 'closeups'. And if I say yes to that I have 2 tulips on my screen. LOL I am so not techy.

LOL Susan ... I'm not so techy either. Those are some GREAT pictures though!

Laura said...

Actually, those really are good pictures, even if of a spider. Ewww. I didn't mention capturing a wolf spider in the kitchen. While I was looking for a jar to imprison her in, she crawled into Fry's shoe! Thankfully, Fry was asleep and didn't find out until much later. We were both seriously creeped out by the whole spider thing.

I do owe you an email, by the way. :)

Susan said...

Thanks Sprite! You show me great scenery and I show you spiders. heh. Oh well.

Susan said...

LOL Laura, that's one thing we don't have in common. I actually like spiders :-)

Don't worry about the eMail...gives me something to look forward to next week!
