Common Garden Spider

I spotted this spider from my kitchen window, it's made a large web covering the whole of the door to my shed, I couldn't resist grabbing my camera and taking some shots.

Not to everyones taste I know, but as it's starting to get colder they are moving closer and closer to the house and in the right light you can see thousands of webs spanning from the trees to me gutters and we have had some beauties running through the living room.


I'm collecting icons so don't forget to follow my blog through the link in the side bar, cheers ;).

Photos taken with a Nikon D70 + 28-100mm & + 4 macro adaptor.

  1. Yes, it is that time of year here too. The spiders are very busy weaving those webs and storing up for the winter.

    I wish I had a macro that worked that well. Great photos.

    We are going to get spoiled to a weekday photo display if you aren't careful.

  5. Yep. I got one or had one, actually two, of those guarding my tomatoes but I think the cold weather did them in as they have disappeared.

    Your photographs of them are very nice and well done.

  6. These are absolutely amazing shots but this is also gross. LOL! I've seen more spiders too, especially when I go to Descanso Gardens. You really have to be careful where you walk because the webs are EVERYWHERE and they're not little. Again, these shots are amazing!

  11. Hi Mike,

  12. These pictures are fascinating, the web as much as the spiders. I am not a fan of spiders, but I am of design and in that interest the closeups in your photos are amazing!
