Flickr a Day 269: ‘Spider’

That scream you just heard is my wife as she came to the website. I should have warned her about our featured arachnid. Dominic Wade shot self-titled “Spider” on Aug. 30, 2015, using Fujifilm FinePix HS11. Vitals: f/5, ISO 100, 1/125 sec, 32.7mm.

“This was a challenge to photograph”, he says. “The spider is tiny and posed a challenge even with a 10x zoom Macro lens. The slightest breeze was enough to make the web move. At least the spider kept still”.

Tutor for Durham County Council, Dominic is from Peterlee, United Kingdom. He joined Flickr in November 2006.
