    A large garden spider has taken up residence on our porch. She mostly just hangs in the same spot all day and I thought this morning I would try to grab some pictures. The first two were taken in the morning, the second two in the afternoon - she found some lunch in the meantime!

    All pics were taken with an EPM1 and an old 50mm nikkor AIS lens with and extension tube on an adaptor. I think they were all shot at 2.8. Its the background that's the poetry!

    Looks like a cousin of my spider could be in your garden!

    I like your quote, by the way.
