Don't do what I do and stand outside in the highest part of the county with towels draped over the camera to keep it dry in order to photograph lightning.

Is that it's true color, Eric?

Fairly close. I use a custom white balance on the camera (necessary because I had the filter switched out for Astronomy use).

The spider lacked the stark coloring they normally have. I suspect it is because it is an immature one.

The "Marge Simpson" pattern and web habbit matches.

Thanks. The 1st one was in my onion patch. That 2nd one was on a friend's house.

Here is another one from my yard. Definitely one of my favorite spiders. They look dangerous but they are pretty much harmless.

Got home from work a couple days ago and a butterfly was dining on a Tiger Lilly. Damn point and shoot left me out of focus and washed out but it's the thought that counts. :)
