First photo entry for Gardening Gone Wild

November 8th, 2009 Posted in Uncategorized

When I chanced upon this event behind the compost pile, I couldn’t resist entering this month’s Gardening Gone Wild “Picture This” theme, “End of the Line.”

End of the line

The wind got me before I could catch the spider that made this truly the end of the line for somebody.

    Thanks, Pam, this was silly since it wasn’t a great photograph, but too fun to pass up!

    I didn’t think it was silly at all, and the lines of the web are very clear. I think it was a great entry, and enjoyed it very much. Good luck in the contest.

    All of you are so sweet! I hadn’t even planned to enter. I saw this guy and took the picture for the blog. Then I saw the contest and thought what the heck! Meredith, I can’t wait to go look at your picture! Great minds think alike, huh?

    I have never seen one of these spiders but I heard someone mention them the other day. They really look like biters. Good luck with your entry.

    Well, I love your spider, Linda. What I couldn’t believe is that I had sat down at the computer to post about the very same kind of spider! Mine’s black and white, though. I keep shaking my head about it — I hope you don’t mind that my post is about one, too! Did you know they are sometimes called smiley-face spiders, due to the markings on their backs? Sending you a smile!

    Oh My gosh!!! THAT is a winner! I love that picture. I feel SO silly…I kept going to your blog to read it and it was still on a Halloween post. I couldn’t understand why you weren’t blogging. I had to refresh the page…I was just going to that particular link. GEEK!

    Is that one of the spiny orb-weavers? I’ve tried to take photos but never could focus. Not sure whether it was me or the camera but you caught one! Good luck, Linda – your End of the Line entry is very cool.

    Love it! I really like the spots of light in the background, and how the red and green complement each other, and how nicely the web is illuminated. It’s a very nice shot indeed!

    What fun! (Isn’t it amazing how hard it is to photograph those spiderwebs?)
