Spider Glitter

Was fishing with friends on the Chassahowitzka River a few years ago on a cold January morning. On the way out to the boat, a spider had spun her web low on the wooden walkway's hand railing which caught my eye. It was not big, about the size of my hand. But it was backlit by the sun just bright enough to give the tiny droplets of dew amazing and wonderful detail. The lot of a photographer is to never let other objectives get in the way of a shot of opportunity, despite the abuse of others who clearly felt their fishing should not be delayed by the apparent idiocy of a guy on his knees trying to photograph a bug. This was taken with a 70-200mm telephoto lens at 105mm.
