WW: Scary Spider at Elizabethan Gardens

Scary Spider Photo
"The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web."
- Pablo Picasso

No, I didn't get that close to such a large spider. Ogre spied the web while we were walking through Elizabethan Gardens and bravely stepped in as photographer. He took the perfect Halloween picture for me to share during his birthday week.

  8. She's so pretty :-) I always imagine spiders in their webs to be "she" - Maybe it's from reading Charlotte's Web as a kid?

  12. The spider does look intimidating, but he or she does make for a nice Halloween photo. Love the light orbs that are captured in the photo.
