Something for spider week. Not great image, but I'm not used to seeing spiders in early December. I was photographing the aster seed heads and noticed the spider climbing around.

Hi Tom, nicely seen and captured. I like the shallow dof for the seed head.

As an arachnophobe I don't like seeing pictures with spiders... but this is truly a magnificent work of art, the little spider fits well
with the fine details of this plant.
