Spider Blur

Usually, my bug and arachnid shots are highly detailed macros. This motion shot won a place in my heart though. This orb weaver lives on top of one of our front windows (on the outside).

On this day, it was very windy and there was a feather lodged in his web. Every time the wind moved the feather, he came scurrying down at top speed in case it happened to be a juicy meal.
