Spiders are in pretty short supply in the new house, so I was delighted to find a crab spider in the cosmos yesterday. I was very struck by how much larger her two front left legs were compared to those on the right. Almost as though she was a left-handed tennis player, or something :)

I don't see the images below as particularly remarkable feats of photography; however, I'm pleased because when I was in the act of making them, I had a clear idea of what I wanted the final image to be, composed the shot, used the camera settings to record the light required for it, then was able to successfully execute my vision in post.

Surely this is what the thought process and steps taken for most (non-action) photos should be, right? Ideally, sure.

Honestly though, I'm not always this thoughtful about every aspect of making a photo while mashing down that little shutter button. Even when I am paying attention, I don't always quite nail the shot – whether that's composition, exposure, timing – and have to make the best of it in post.

So, it's satisfying to realize/recognize/remember that when I put my mind to it, I know how visualize an image and am capable of then making it a reality (altered though it may be).

Couldn't resist taking a shot of this spider a few days ago. I saw one of the local stray cats trying to get to him since then though. I haven't seen him in his regular spot since. So I suspect that he might have been turned into a snack.

Edit,
Does anyone else see some strange artifacts in this photo? I posted it on my mac and it looked ok but looking at it on my PC I see some artifacts that look like boiling mud, as per below screen shot.

Looks like a may have crushed the shadows a bit too much? Not sure as they don't show on the mac.

Just checked after posting this and they dont show on the PC either when using the picture viewer. Only show when viewing on the forum on the PC. Tablet and Mac ok

Very odd

This was an interesting photo to get. This little fellow ran around to the bottom of the leaf, so I had to use the EM10 flip down screen and hold the camera upside down under the leaf and use the rear screen flipped to see the little fellow and get the focus point. It was too low to get underneath the leaf.

A flip out screen would have been harder as I would have disturbed near by leaves possibly chasing him away for good.

If you look really close at the opiliones you can see a red mite hanging off of it.
