My desktop wallpaper choice for today is this macro shot of a spider on his web. If you’ve come late to the digital SLR party (by which I mean you bought your DSLR once they became affordable), words will not be able to describe to you how bloody difficult it was to do macro photography with the Nikon D100 and it’s teeny tiny viewfinder. But when you get such a beautiful spider like this sat in its web, it was worth all the trouble.
As an aside, I thought I’d share with you that my dear wife loves to call me Anansi, because whenever we go camping, spiders inevitably turn up. Actually, come to think of it, they also turn up in the house, but that doesn’t put her off using it.
