Beauty and the Beast
SmugMug Daily Link
I guess it was bound to happen. With a writing spider web mixed in with the butterfly bushes at Donnie's house and the butterflies fluttering about, one of them got caught up in his web yesterday. I wish he'd caught some other insect. Earlier in the week he had a beetle of some sort. But, he's got to eat too. But, hey, Mr. Spider no more swallowtails!
I know it's not a pretty picture, but for you nature enthusiasts, I hope you find this shot interesting. I did my best to get good dof and to get it sharp. I took about 15 shots between my two cameras and studied them for clarity. I cropped this just a tad and also brightened it a bit. Auto Contrast and Lucky fix were yucky, so I manually adjusted it. I like the little spider next to the big one too. In a later frame he has moved down closer to the butterfly, so I don't think he was stuck.
