    Looks delicious! (Not the spider!)

  2. I saw a perfect spider web the other morning when I was running with my dog. It was dark, but my headlamp allowed me to see the beautiful strands. Everything felt right with the world at that moment 🙂

  7. Christina says:

    Nice looking raspberries, my favourite!

  8. AmyRose🌹 says:

    I’ve been seeing a lot of spiders. I wonder what it means. Any ideas?

  9. Widdershins says:

    Guardian of the Raspberries. 🙂

  10. Kris P says:

    A great shot! The spider knows those raspberries are going to tempt visitors.

  11. Lovely shots. We saw the same species of spider on a flowering shrub a few weeks back. Their colouring is jewel like.

      Thanks, Belinda. They are so attractive as spiders go. I need to keep an eye out for her egg sac to get a photo of it. I’m glad she is in the raspberries, as it will be protected this winter.

    It seems to be spider season. I am seeing them on all my favourite blogs. This one has such lovely colours:) And those raspberries look yum!

  13. Lovely. The rasberries looks yummy…

    Nice! I don’t think you could compose a better photo. The spider obliged by spinning in just the right spot and the raspberries ripened on just the right day, and you angled just right to have the web catch the light. Perfect!

    Spider and raspberries–a perfect September combo. Happy Equinox.

    Absolutely stunning shots Eliza. That spider!

  17. Kathy Sturr says:

    Frankenstein! That’s what I used to call these spiders when I was little. I love that you captured the zig in the web!

  18. Garden spiders terrify me (I know they aren’t going to do anything to me, but still…so big and scary looking!). The other day, I went to pick some tomatoes, and stuck my hand right in a garden spider web. It was the stuff of nightmares in my world.

    In related news, I haven’t been down to the garden for tomatoes since.

    Is this an orb spider, Eliza? She’s very pretty, isn’t she?

  20. Maria F. says:

    Great images Eliza, these are garden spiders, aren’t they?

  21. Laurie Graves says:

    Outstanding!!!

  22. MK says:

    Looks to me like you’ve illustrated our experience of choice, huh?

  23. Eliza Waters says:

    She was quite calm as we picked around her. I kept forgetting that she was there!
