Every year we have a wave of spiders where I live. I don't mind. They are great predators for other insects that do bother me. Some years the population explodes and it seems as though they are ready to take the house over. This year it hasn't been bad. I've been meaning to stop my daily comings-and-goings to take some photos and today I've managed to do it. These were taken right outside my front door. It was afternoon so the winds were up. I wanted to start to learn about focus stacking but the webs moved too much to get any continuity. I'll be putting some "stacked" photos later.
