Q: Sigma DG 70-300mm 1:4-5.6 Upgrade wanted

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

Found this orb spider literally hanging around here at home imprisoning its capture. It had made a cozy home by spinning a web and suspending itself below a cornish board at the end of the house. We kept a close eye on it because it was directly above a bench where we sit almost every day.Too close for comfort for me. I am scared half to death of these things,but I love taking photos of them. This photo was taken a safe distance away with a 400 mm lens. We observed it for a few days and then coaxed it onto a broom and relocated it to a nearby tree.After all, WE were here first!

    This is really excellent, Donna...perfect!!!...I know how you feel about spiders...We had a wolf spider sitting on our kitchen counter yesterday and they are huge...My husband carried it outside in a container before it could make a meal out of one of us:).

    This gave me chill bumps when I saw this photo!!!! I do not like spiders either and I would have gotten out my 300 lens also if I had seen a spider like this. It is beautiful though and so funny about the captured lunch.
